|THE AUSTRALIAN STOCK HORSE 2014 1OZ SILVER COIN|
As I pointed out on the blog recently (advised release on April 1st), the Perth Mint has released the next coin in the 'Australian Stock Horse Series'. The first coin in the series was released in 2013 and was a big hit with coin punters and collectors alike.
The standard bullion coin which was first sold by many dealers around the A$45-50 mark, before realising they had a winner on their hands and jacked up the prices, now sells for up to double that price on ebay. Likewise, the rarer carded version (only 1,000 released in that particular packaging) is also still selling around double the issue price of A$59 (circa $100-130 now on ebay). Bullion Baron
I presume they will retain the status quo for the silver version of the coin with a 9,000 coin release (just capsule & numbered COA), while keeping aside 1,000 for a carded release (which last year, as predicted, sold out within a day). They could of course change this, the series is not a Perth Mint original, it has been commissioned by a dealer, but they would be silly to mess with the winning formula after last years success in my opinion.
I will be watching for the release of this coin and if the opportunity arises I will be buying multiple, but I suspect Perth Mint will restrict sales. I'm not sure it will perform as well as the previous coin (quickly doubling in value), but I think the potential is there if the design is a winner. Bullion Baron
I was online just minutes ago as the coin went live (bought a bundle of them myself) and the 400 added to the site were sold out in around 10 minutes. See the product page below:
