The end of the calendar year doesn’t just bring about cooler weather and the holiday season, it also starts the launch schedule for major annual bullion programs from mints around the globe. A number of the top-selling gold and silver bullion coins are either available for purchase already or going on presale as mints prepare to release the initial stockpiles. In the United States, the American Eagle coins will launch in the weeks to come with the 2020 American Silver Eagle and 2020 American Gold Eagle on presale now. Elsewhere, Perth Mint, Royal Mint of England, and Bavarian State Mint coins are already available for investors to get a jump on purchasing 2020 date marks.
One of the world leaders in precious metals, the Perth Mint’s range of bullion coins needs no real introduction. The Australian Silver Kookaburra and Australian Silver Kangaroo are already available to purchase online with JM Bullion, and the Australian Silver Koala will be available in the coming weeks. Each of these stunning specimens features .9999 pure silver content backed by the federal government of Australia.
The product to watch from the Perth Mint this year will be the 2020 Australian Silver Kookaburra. This is the 30th Anniversary of the Silver Kookaburra and the Perth Mint is celebrating with a double strike of the famous bird. The reverse features a new design, as always, with a kookaburra perched at the apex of a tin roof as the sun rises in the distance. On the obverse, Queen Elizabeth II’s right-profile portrait is confined to the top of the design field. In the lower half, the original 1990 Australian Kookaburra design is struck to mark the occasion. Only 500,000 of these coins will be struck and are sure to sell quickly.
Britannia remains resolute and unchanged on the reverse of the British Britannia bullion coins. The 2020 British Silver Britannia, 2020 British Gold Britannia, and 2020 British Platinum Britannia are all available to purchase already.
Similar to the Perth Mint’s bullion programs, the Bavarian State Mint alters the images on the reverse of the Somalia Elephant coins in the African Wildlife Series each year. 2020 is no exception as the new reverse design in this coveted series features two adult African bush elephants facing inward toward one another. Both elephants have mature tusks, though one has noticeably longer tusks than the other. In the background, the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro looms large. 2020 African Wildlife Somalia Elephant coins are available in a wide range of fractional-ounce silver and gold coins, several weights above 1 oz silver, and the 1 oz platinum coin option.
Available on presale now, you can reserve your 2020 American Silver Eagle 1 oz silver coin and the four weights of the 2020 American Gold Eagle. As you shop the 2020 American Silver Eagle range, you will find that listings are also available for 2020 American Silver Eagle mint tubes of 20 and Monster Boxes of 500.
If you want something a little different, check out the JM Bullion MintSealed 2020 American Silver Eagle Tube. These products are unique compared to the other 2020 Silver Eagle Tubes. JM Bullion takes the tubes from select Monster Boxes and inspects them to ensure the tubes have never been opened. For those tubes that have never been opened, we wrap the entire tube in plastic to ensure its seal remains true and place our JM Bullion MintSealed sticker on it with the date, series name, weight, purity, and metal content of the products within.
All JM Bullion MintSealed American Silver Eagle tubes contain 20 coins that have never been tampered with. From the moment these coins were packaged at the mint the tube has never been opened and the coins never touched.
Finally, the leading bullion series from the Royal Canadian Mint is also available for presale at the moment. The 2020 Canadian Silver Maple Leaf, the world’s first .9999 pure silver bullion coin, is available for presale purchase alongside the five weights of the 2020 Canadian Gold Maple Leaf and the 1 oz Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf.
