The Lunar Series collections available from the Perth Mint represent some of the most coveted silver bullion coins in the industry. Launched in 1996 by the mint, the lunar concept has continued in every year since that time through two full 12-year collections. Over the course of time, the mint has added new options to each lunar release to include colorized bullion coins. Right now, 1 oz Colorized Australian Silver Lunar Coins are available to purchase online from JM Bullion.

Each of the 1 oz Colorized Australian Silver Lunar Coins in this product listing are available with a protective plastic flip. The coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and have been colorized by the Perth Mint to create distinctive visuals on the reverse design element where the Lunar Series designs are located. JM Bullion cannot guarantee a specific date mark or design with your purchase. If you buy multiples, please keep in mind your dates and designs may all match one another.
The application of colorized lacquers on silver bullion coins does nothing to impact the purity of the silver content in the coin. Instead, the thin lacquer is designed to create visual contrasts and real-life appeal to the designs. When it comes to Lunar Series coins, the colorization is limited to the animals portrayed on the reverse of the coins.
On the obverse side of 1 oz Colorized Australian Silver Lunar Coins is a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown in right-profile relief in all official coin portraits throughout her reign. However, the images are updated over the course of time to reflect her age and you are most likely to find the Ian Rank-Broadley design on these coins. The Perth Mint used the fifth-generation design from 1999 in the Lunar Series I release through the 2019 conclusion of the Lunar Series II coins.
The reverse face of the 1 oz Colorized Australian Silver Lunar Coins comes with varying designs. Each of the 12 date marks available in the various Lunar Series collections from the Perth Mint offers a distinctive design of one of the 12 animals from the Zodiac. Possible designs include those of the mouse, oxen, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig. This side of the coin has the only colorization and it is limited in scope to the animal figures in the design field.
