Perth Mint Gold Lunar Series

The Perth Mint Lunar Series (I, II and III) are based upon the 12-year Chinese Lunar Calendar, dating back to 2600BC. The series are popular with both collectors and investors all over the world due to its fineness and are deemed by many, one of the most beautifully designed coins in the world.

Struck from .9999 fine gold, these coins are issued as Australian legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965. The series began in 1996 with the Year of the Mouse, meaning 2020 is the first year of the third series of lunar coins.
