Product Description

Take advantage of the rare opportunity to purchase a few copies of the 2015 Lunar II Goat 1 kilo silver coin. The Lunar II Goat is the 8th coin in the series and produced by the Perth Mint. The Lunar II series started in 2008 following the very successful Lunar I series. The series is modeled after the individual zodiac signs of the Chinese lunar calendar, and has become one of the most popular bullion coin programs from the Perth Mint.

Coins of the Lunar II series are highly sought after by investors and collectors alike. The special feature of Lunar II coins is that the issue price is close to the silver price. Because of the unique designs and limited mintages some editions can quickly develop into collector coins. As a result, Lunar II coins from the Perth Mint belong in the field of semi-numismatics. Further information about semi-numismatics can be found here.

The Chinese character for "Goat" is indicated in the middle area between the goats and trees.
