Product Description

The 12-part Lunar II series from the Perth Mint ends in 2019 with the “Year of the Pig”. Before the end of the series, we are pleased to offer all investors and collectors a rare opportunity to own the 2008 Lunar II Mouse 1 kilo silver coin. The Lunar II Mouse is the first issue of the series. The pieces we offer are in mint condition and in their original packaging.

Take the opportunity and make sure you include this coin in your portfolio while supplies last. Experience has shown that the value of the series will increase as the series finishes. Because of the unique designs and limited mintages, the Lunar II series belongs to the category of semi-numismatic coins. Semi-Numismatics refers to coins that are initially issued to the investor market at a low premium and become collector coins as demand increases. More about semi-numismatics can be found here.

The 1 kilo Lunar II Mouse silver coin shows two highly detailed mice looking off into the distance. The mice are depicted on a bed of straw with pumpkins in the background. In the lower area at the edge is the word "Year of the Mouse". On the left side is the letter "P" which stands for the Perth Mint. In the upper right corner just above the mice is the Chinese character for "Mouse".

The value side is decorated with a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. She is shown in profile, wearing a tiara and an earring. Under the motif are the initials "IRB", which represent artist and engraver Ian Rank-Broadley. The inscription reads "Elizabeth II ● Australia ● 1KG 999 2008 30 Dollars"
