Gold coin investors should buy Lunar Series gold coins before buying unlimited production bullion coins.
Gold coin investors
will be delighted with the 2004 Gold Monkey, through which The Perth Mint continues its outstanding craftsmanship in the Lunar Series gold coins.  The Monkey is the ninth coin in the twelve coin series.  

Like all the 1-oz coins of the Lunar Series, production of the 1-oz Gold Monkeys will be capped at 30,000 coins. 

Although the Lunar Series gold coins are marketed to collectors, the coins sell at only a few dollars over the prices of the popular gold bullion coins, which have little to no chance of achieving collector premiums.  Long-term gold bullion investors should add Lunar Series gold coins to their portfolios while the coins are available at bullion coin price.

In active coin markets, which are usually brought on by fears of economic instability, falling stock markets, and declining currency values, limited edition 1-oz gold coins often achieve significant premiums in the secondary market.  The 2000 Dragon, the first coin in the Lunar Series to reach its production cap of 30,000 coins, is carrying a big premium in the secondary market. 

Other Monkey Years include 1992, 1980, 1968, 1956, 1944, 1932, 1920, and 1908.
