Some of the proof Perth Mint lunar coins have struggled in recent years, sometimes selling below release price, the Three-Coin Set & 1oz Silver Proof is usually fast to sell out though and for the collector the secondary market price doesn't always matter so much as you are securing the next issue for your collection.

If you missed this article last year I'd highly recommend a read (in which I detail some of the reasons to stick with the Silver 1oz & Three-Coin Set Proofs if speculating on the coins which are more likely to hold their value or rise):

'Perth Mint 2014 Silver Lunar Horse Proof Coins - Baron's Picks: Three-Coin Set & 1oz Proof'

Along with sale in the Three-Coin Set, the 2oz Year of the Goat Proof Silver Coin will be sold separately, last year it appeared around November.

For those buying any of the proof lunar coins from Perth Mint, you will want to be refreshing this page at the time of their release for the best opportunity to purchase the coins:

Further to tomorrows releases, keep an eye out for the next 'Gods of Olympus' Series Coin (Hades 2014 2oz Silver High Relief Coin), this has been a popular series (see my post 'Gods of Olympus – Poseidon 2014 2oz Silver High Relief Coin From Perth Mint') and the final issue is coming October 7th, 8am WST.

Interestingly this year with the Goat it doesn't look like the 3 coin set has the same demand... now 12 hours after sales opened and the 3 coin set still available on the website. Even 350 with free shipping on eBay... looks like the lunar series has well and truly gone off the boil...

Yep, very average enthusiasm for these coins so far. Three Coin Set listed by one dealer on Silver Stackers with 3 free round 50c pieces (roughly 1 ounce of Silver) and free insured post, all included for $350.

I think this officially signifies the death of the lunar series from Perth Mint... if only they hadn't gone all dragon crazy with all the different variations and just stuck with the standards from the previous years the lunar series may not be in this mess.

I have every single Lunar Series II Kilo coins. I can't wait to finish the set and put them into a nice collectors case. The whole set should go for a nice mint. ;)
