The Perth Mint unveiled a special Coloured Rooster from its Australian Lunar Coin Series at the Melbourne 2017 FIAP International Stamp Exhibition over the weekend.
Struck from a 1/4oz of 99.99% pure silver, the Australian legal tender coin features a rooster with a hen and chicks in vivid colour.
Hunters of rare coin show specials can acquire the release from today through the Mint’s website. But the opportunity is likely to be short-lived, with no more than 2,500 coins housed in 2017 Melbourne International Stamp Expo packaging on offer.
An unusual weight for a silver collector coin, the 1/4oz release has a retail price of just AUD 29 and would make an ideal keepsake for anyone born in the Year of the Rooster.
