One of the most significant coin launches of the year takes place this month with the unveiling of the 2017 Australian Lunar Gold and Silver Coin Series. Along with a comprehensive range of bullion coins, the scrupulously-crafted Proof Issue celebrates the Year of the Rooster, 10th animal of the ancient Chinese lunar calendar.

Our new proof-quality Silver Kangaroo coins lay claim to a number of ‘firsts’ which you can read about in a forthcoming blog post. Struck from ‘four nines’ silver, these iconic releases feature one of the best-known depictions of Australia’s most famous marsupial.

The incredible Wedge-tailed Eagle now appears in extraordinary detail on magnificent gold and silver high relief coins struck from 5oz of pure gold and 5oz of pure silver. They’re joined by a new and equally exhilarating 1oz gold and silver ‘bi-metal’ coin featuring John Mercanti’s superb depiction of our largest bird of prey.

It was 50 years ago this month that cultural phenomenon Star Trek was first seen on TV and to mark the occasion we’re delighted to introduce a unique silver commemorative in the shape of the ‘Delta Shield’, instantly recognisable to all fans as the Starfleet crew badge since the launch of The Original Series in 1966.

With the White Lyon addition to the gorgeous The Cubs series, another coin from the Endangered and Extinct Australian animal series, as well as a new treat for fans of Disney’s Mickey Mouse, September’s new coin bulletin is packed with highlight!
