Perth Mint: 2015 Gold Bullion Coin Program
Perth Mint has unveiled the latest designs of the Australian 2015 Bullion Coin Program to an audience of financiers and investors in Frankfurt, Germany – its number one market for gold and silver bullion coins.
Comprising 99.99% pure gold coins ranging in sizes from 1/20 oz to 10 kilos, these stunning coins are released with select mintage limits and distinguished designs.
Perth Mint Sales and Marketing Director, Ron Currie, said that European investors purchased 1.6 million investment coins in this past year. “We expect these authentic designs to prompt further purchases from established clients, as well as capture the interest of new investors throughout Europe and across the world,” he added.
The four smaller coins from the Australian Kangaroo gold series will illustrate a bounding kangaroo as it crosses the Australian outback with the moon in the background.
To complement this artistry, the kilo release will feature a leaping red kangaroo circled by rays of sunlight.
Featuring an Eastern theme, the 2015 designs of the Australian Lunar coin series will celebrate the Year of the Goat.
The gold coins will capture a goat standing on a ridge with mountains in the background, while the silver issues will depict a family of goats standing amid a stylised rural scene.
Scheduled for release over the next four months, the Australian Lunar and Kookaburra series will be available from September, followed by the Kangaroo in October, the Koala in November, and the Platypus in January.
The 2015 Australian Bullion Coin Program is available from the Bullion Trading Desk at The Perth Mint, 310 Hay Street in East Perth.
The investment offerings can also be ordered via the Mint’s dedicated Bullion Line 1300 201 112 (Australia), +61 8 9421 7218 (International), or online at www.perthmintbullion.com
