is the eighth coin in the Perth Mintís 12-coin Lunar Series.
As with all the 1-oz gold Lunar Series coins,
production is limited to 30,000 coins.
CMI recommends that investors seriously consider the Lunar
Coins when investing in gold. In the past, collectible coins
have risen to very high prices during precious metals bull
markets. Actually, sometimes those markets have overheated,
and collectibles have achieved unrealistic prices.
the Perth Mintís Lunar Series coins are among the most
exquisite coins being minted, because the 1-oz coins are
limited to 30,000, and because of the timeliness of the Lunar
Series, CMI believes the Lunar Series 1-oz gold coins hold the
potential to become sought after collectibles.
We highly recommend them while they sell at only a few
dollars more than the popular bullion coins.
We are confident that the metals have turned the corner and
are headed upward. If we are right, the Lunar Series coins
could do very well. The
Lunar Series 1-oz gold coins sell at only a few dollars more
than current year 1-oz Gold Eagles and 1-oz Gold Maple Leafs,
both of which are unlimited production coins.
Other Goat Years include 1991, 1979, 1967, 1955, 1943, 1931,
1919, and 1907.
have the opportunity to profit two ways by going with the
Lunar Series 1-oz gold coins, by an increase in the price of
gold and by an increase in the premiums. Going in, investors
pay only a few dollars more than they would for Gold Eagles.
However, Gold Eagles have little, if any, potential for
premium increases. They are strictly bullion coins. The Lunar
Coins, on the other hand, are sold mostly to collectors who
are used to paying premiums for collector coins. CMI believes
there are several reasons to expect the Lunar Series coins to
First, the Perth Mint produces the most exquisite coins in the
world. The Mint's coins are renown among collectors. In fact,
CMI can categorically say that not one of its clients has been
dissatisfied with the quality of Lunar Series coins that they
Second, Lunar Calendar animals are immensely popular with
Asians. All Asians know what Lunar Calendar year in which they
were born. As Asians discover to Lunar Series coins, prices
could be pushed higher in the secondary market as many of the
coins will be collected, used in jewelry, and turned into
Further, in 2008, China will host the Summer Olympics. As
those Olympics approach, we can expect a torrent of media hype
about China, its land, people, and culture. More people will
learn about the Lunar Calendar, and we can expect Lunar
Calendar promotions of everything from trinkets to gold coins.
The Perth Mintís Lunar Series coins could become extremely
popular in such a climate.
1-oz Dragons, which reached their 30,000-coin cap and are no
longer available from the Perth Mint, are selling at
significant premiums in the secondary market. CMI believes
all the 1-oz Lunar Series gold coins hold the potential to
sell out and achieve premiums in the collector market.]
