Coins Australia Lunar Series: overview, history of appearance, interesting facts

The Moon Series coins - the Lunar of Australia - are very popular among investors. It was the great interest in them that contributed to the fact that they were re-released twice. Coins are in demand not only as an investment asset, but also as collectible copies.

The Mint of Australia has existed since the 19th century. At the time of its creation, the country was part of the British Empire. The courtyard is located in the city of Perth, and today is the only mint of the state. However, earlier in Australia there were two more mints that were located in Sydney and Melbourne. They were built next to the mines, but over time only Perth remained functioning.

Until 1970, control over the issue of currency belonged to the UK, but subsequently passed to the authorities of Western Australia. The image of the profile of Elizabeth II on the obverse of coins is a tribute to the centuries-old tradition when portraits of British monarchs were depicted on monetary units.

What is included in the series

History of the series

The Lunar Series, depicting the eastern horoscope, was first released in 1996. For 12 years, the Australian Mint issued units of different denominations depicting an animal dominating the calendar. The last coin was released in 2007.

However, the demand for the first edition was so great that the authorities decided to make a second series. The beautiful design of the coins and the high purity of gold were located in order to choose them as an investment asset. In addition, they became a wonderful gift for numismatists.

Since 2008, the second series of coins was launched, the release of which continued until 2019. In 2020, the Perth Moment Yard launched the third series of Lunar, which will be produced until 2031.

The design of the "Moon Series" is developed by 2 artists: Ian Rank-Bradley and Travis Farley. In general, the editions of the same series differ little from each other, but still there are minor differences in the images. The most different from other copies are 10-dollar coins. Their design is designed in the traditional Chinese style. It is also noteworthy that all monetary units of this denomination are sold in a special wooden box placed in a package with the symbols of China.

The $100 coin of 2016 is also different. On the obverse of the coin around the portrait of Her Majesty is a ring of zodiac circle symbols.

Cost of Lunar

Like any other investment coins, the Luanre is much more expensive than the face value depicted on them. The cost of copies is formed depending on the price of the Troy ounce at a particular moment. This rule applies to any monetary units made of precious metals - gold, silver, platinum, etc.

For example, the price of a 10-dollar copy can reach up to $300, 50-dollar ones cost within $650, 100-dollar ones can be bought for $1200-1350. The cost also depends on the number of copies. The smaller the circulation, the rarer the coin is considered, which means its price is higher.

The Mint of Australia issued not only gold Lunar, but also silver. Their reverse also depicts animals according to the eastern horoscope, and on the obverse - a portrait of Elizabeth II. The cost of silver units, of course, is lower than gold. However, they also remain attractive to investors.
