Established in 1996, The Perth Mint was the first to release an Australian lunar coin program. Due to its success, it is now in its third series.
Made with the fine gold, silver and platinum in combination with intricate craftsmanship, these Australian lunar collector coins explore the ancient tradition and mythical folklore of the Chinese Great Race.
