Perth Mint Australian Lunar Series II 2014 Year of the Horse Proof Coins Released

Recent posts on the Perth Mint Australian Lunar Series II 2014 Year of the Horse Proof Coins:




The Perth Mint Australian Lunar Series II 2014 Year of the Horse Proof Coins were released today. I expect the Silver Three-Coin Set & 1oz Silver Proof to be the fastest sellers, but some of the other sizes may also be a hot commodity.

The Silver Three-Coin set was unavailable within around 10 minutes on the site after launch, but expect that more may be released in the morning, so keep alert!

Here is some direct links to the products that have been released today:

------------------------------
I sought clarification on the 2oz Silver Proof Coin given that it wasn't released with the other proof coins and had some email queries, this was the answer provided by the Perth Mint:

"All those who purchased the Australian Lunar Series II 2oz Silver Proof Coin Collection (with the first six coins) will receive a letter / email inviting them to secure the 2014 Year of the Horse release. These notifications will be sent out by the Mint in November. It will include details of how long their coin will be reserved and the final order date should they wish to proceed."

So no need to worry camping on the refresh button if you've purchased one of the sets!

Thanks for the clarification on the 2oz silver proof coin. I was wondering if I could ever complete my Australian Lunar Series II 2oz Silver Proof Coin Collection set given the fast 'sold-out' of the 3-coin set. Looking forward to November.

No problems.

I set an alarm for the middle of the night to grab a three-coin set and still missed out!

In fact, I already had the 3-coin set in the cart, but they were all out by the time I get to the payment stage!

there,s plenty for sale in europe 3 coin set my dealer says next week he got some for 240 euro

Does anybody have an idea on the remaining 1000 1 oz Proof Coins?

The total mintage is 8500 coins. The 1 oz proof Mintage is 5000. Another 1500 coins are in the Typeset and 1000 coins in the Three-Coin set. Like every year this is a total of 7500 1 oz Proof coins. So where are the other 1000 coins?

Will there be a 10 coin set for 1 oz proof coins as well? Just like with the 2 oz coins?

Any ideas?

I managed to buy on ebay a lunar horse 2 oz silver proof for 130$ and the coin is in a box of his own, it's not part of a set. How come there is no mention of it on the perth mint site ?

Only german dealers seem to have it. Mintage is allegedly 1000.

There are actually sold without box, so they are coming from three coins set

I received the letter from Perth Mint to secure the 2oz Year of the Horse silver coin. Yes, via snail mail. Deadline was 5pm AWST Friday 22 Nov. Letter was dated Nov 8, but I received the letter on 26 Nov. Call them this morning (Nov 27) and was still able to order one, luckily!

Geez that is poor service (either from Australia Post or Perth Mint), they could have sent an email too.
