Final mintages for all Perth Mint modern numismatic coin programs issued between 1986 and 2010 are now available online.

When you visit the mintage page on our collector website, click the year-date in which you are interested for a complete display of this vital data.

Maximum Mintage

For each limited coin you will find its Maximum Mintage – the total number of coins authorised for production. If sales match the Maximum Mintage figure, the coin is labelled SOLD OUT.

Declared Mintage

Alternatively, the coin’s Declared Mintage is displayed – that is the final production figure for a coin that has been closed-off before its Maximum Mintage is reached.

Declared Mintages will never change and are therefore useful in determining the rarity of your coins.

Sales Update

Collectable coins issued in 2011 and 2012 are still available and this latest update presents sales as at 30/12/12.

  1. Thanks for the update. A curious notation, and that is, regarding the 2010 silver Tiger GILDED, it appears that the actual mint number went down, not up from the last update you gave. Am I the only one who is imagining this?

     
  2. One last question, not about nuemismatics, but about bullion. I have a lot of kook bullion coins collected over the years. I see that many years have not been sold out. It is kind of a bummer, that if one bought a lot of 1994’s back in 1994 and a little beyond, but here it is in 2013, you can still mint 1994’s. Heck, the 1994’s can continue to be minted for years and years to come until the allotment of 300k is filled. Am I the only one who thinks that kook, kook? Granted this isn’t a nuemismatic investment, but lets be frank, we are paying a premium for those coins, so there is at least a semi nuemismatic value to the coin, yes? I would think the person who bought in 1994 wasn’t thinking the 1994 would still be sold in 2030. Crazy right?

     
    • My understanding is the mint has indicated it will not being doing any reminting anymore, so there is no need to worry.

       
    • Hi Bob

      Well there has been a lot of debate about this recently! In response, we changed our policy earlier this year – and you can read Ron Currie’s announcement on our bullion blog here.

      Take a look at the Bullion Mintage page and open the relevant document and you will see that we have also Declared mintages for all Kookaburra bullion coins issued between 1990 and 2012.

      Hope this helps,

      Regards

  3. Helps a ton! That is great to know that no more will be minted, once sold out or declared numbers have been made. Awesome news. Why I have a ‘ton’ of both your nuemismatic and Kook bullion coins. And will continue to keep putting these worthless pieces of paper into something with real ‘power.’ Silver! Thanks again! And thanks Louis.

     
  4. hello blogteam, thx for the good news. i have to ask some open.

    When will the production of colored silver lunarII rabbit finished and declared?
    When will the production of colored silver lunarII dragon finished and declared?
    Why are there these different mintage maturities between bullion and colored silver lunarII rabbit? This is a pity. Where can I buy the 1 oz colored silver lunar II rabbit still?

    Now some errors in my view:
    You wrote 7500 pieces high relief dragon are the maximum mintage, but packaging mintage is meant !

    The new 12-Proof-LunarII-set has a size of 2oz not 1oz!
    (What is the possible maximum mintage of 2oz Proof LunarII?)

    Regards
    Adam

     
    • Hi Adam

      Please see answers to your questions in italics:

      When will the production of colored silver lunarII rabbit finished and declared? Early 2014

      When will the production of colored silver lunarII dragon finished and declared? Early 2015

      Why are there these different mintage maturities between bullion and colored silver lunarII rabbit? Currently, bullion products are declared to 2012; numismatic products to 2010.

      Where can I buy the 1 oz colored silver lunar II rabbit still? In Germany, try Silber Corner, MDM or Weka.

      Now some errors in my view:
      You wrote 7500 pieces high relief dragon are the maximum mintage, but packaging mintage is meant ! Correct (this issue has been addressed by the new Mintage Policy and will not happen in future).

      The new 12-Proof-LunarII-set has a size of 2oz not 1oz! (What is the possible maximum mintage of 2oz Proof LunarII?) 2,000

      Hope this is clear,

      Kind regards

  5. Cannot see any mint figures or info for a set I just purchased. Has two 1kg silver, 2 oz gold and 1 oz platinum from 1994. Set is numbered 2497. Any infor would be helpful. Steve

     
    • Hi Steve

      The set you bought sounds like the Aussie Diversified Precious Metals Portfolio, billed at the time as “the world’s first diversified precious metal investment portfolio”. The promotional literature said it was presented in a “handsome case which will fit into most safe deposit boxes”.

      Unfortunately, the sales and mintage figures available for these particular bullion coins do not distinguish whether they were sold individually or in sets.

      Without doubt, you’ve picked up a stunning coin set!

      Kind regards

  6. Dear Sir/Madam,
    I have a few questions and hope that your team can help :

    1) I am searching for 2012 lunar colorred dragon coins (5oz and 1oz), Tuvalu 2013 Phoenix $1 pure silver coin and Emperor Penguin 2012 1oz Silver Proof Coin. Are all these coins still available to buy from your website ?

    2) is Talismancoin.com one of Perth Mint official distributor ?

    3) I noticed that there are some counterfeid 2012 silver coins in the market. Is there any way we can confirm that the coins that we buy are not a counterfeid ?
    Do all the 2012 coloured dragon silver coins from Perth mint have official certificates with them ?

    Many thanks.

    With regards,
    Chia

     
  7. Many thanks for your help !

     
  8. I am confused. I have seen two different 2013 1 oz. colorized snake silver coins. One is a green-yellow snake. The other is a black-yellow snake. I would like to collect a set of 12 lunar coins but do not know which of the two snakes to purchase to have a compete 12 coin set. Same thing with the dragons. Can you help me understand the differences and mintages for each?

     
    • Hi Dennis

      The Australian Lunar Series II 2013 Year of the Snake 1oz Silver Proof Coloured Coin portrays a black/yellow snake. As proof coins they feature a shiny ‘table’. We did make some green/yellow versions for inclusion in our four coin Typeset Collection (sold out), and we also released some individually as our World Money Fair Coin Show Special (no longer available). These versions were colourised bullion coins, which means they featured a frosted ‘table’.

      Please don’t hesitate to ask further questions as we’re always delighted to help.

      Kind regards
