With every commemorative for 2012’s Year of the Dragon receiving an abundance of interest throughout the global market, the Royal Australian Mint has just announced the addition of two releases that no one anticipated to be issued into their product portfolio – comes a 1oz Silver Proof and a 1/10oz Gold Proof.

Struck to the highest of Proof quality from .999 fine silver, the 40.00mm Silver Proof is restricted to a global mintage of just 18,000 coins. A highly exclusive, matching, 17.53mm Gold issue, crafted also to Proof quality from .9999 fine gold – this exquisite coin is limited to a mintage of just 8,000 coins.
Issued as official Australian Legal tender, and struck specifically for an international corporate order – only a minuscule number of each the 1oz Silver Proof and 1/10oz Gold Proof will be available on the market – immediate action is needed to secure what is sure to be one of the most popular RAM releases yet!
With celebrations for the long awaited Year of the Dragon already underway – The Perth Mint has announced their newest Precious Metal Series to commemorate the most popular sign in the Chinese Lunar Calendar and it will be undoubtedly one of the biggest releases of 2012!
With global demand soaring for all 2012 Dragon lunar releases, The Perth Mint’s 2012 Year of the Dragon Bullion Series has proved no exception to the surplus of demand throughout the numismatic market. With our allocations of the two 1oz precious metal coins comparatively tiny to the raging demand – Downies has subsequently sold out!
