The Perth Mint has come up with still another fabulous coin in the year 2005 Rooster gold investment bullion Lunar coin , the tenth coin in the Mint’s Lunar Series. Production of the 1-oz Rooster gold investment bullion Lunar coins, as is the case with all the 1-oz gold coins of the Lunar Series, will be limited to 30,000 coins. All the gold coins in the Lunar Series are minted of .9999 fine gold, and each coin comes individually encapsulated in plastic protective capsules.
So far, the year 2000 1-oz Gold Dragons and the year 2002 1-oz Gold Horses are the only Lunar Series coins to reach the 30,000-coin cap. However, CMIGS believes that as more investors come to this precious metals bull market, all the Lunar Series 1-oz gold coins will sell out.
The year 2001 1-oz Gold Snakes look to be the third coin in the Series to sell out. To increase interest in the Series, The Perth Mint is selling 1-oz Gold Snakes at current year 1-oz Gold Eagle prices. Gold investors who want low premium gold coins should consider the 1-oz Gold Snakes.
The popularity of the animals linked to the Lunar Calendar adds to the appeal of the Lunar Series coins. Additionally, with China hosting the 2008 Summer Olympics, millions of people will be drawn to things associated with the Chinese culture, such as the Lunar Calendar.
