The Perth Mint is reversing its previously stated position and will now restrict the number of Poseidon 2014 2oz Silver High Relief Coins to one per existing retail customer.
In recent days it has become increasingly clear that this coin, which has a maximum mintage of just 1,500, will be highly sought-after.
Unauthorised publication of a Poseidon coin image at the weekend increased enquiries at the Mint today with collectors expressing concern they could miss out if purchases remained unrestricted.
Under the one-per-customer policy, we are confident that more collectors will now get the opportunity to purchase the coin at issue price from the Mint.
The Poseidon 2014 2oz Silver High Relief Coin will be available on The Perth Mint website from 12.01am 3 June 2014 (AWST).
