Celebrating the eighth animal in the Chinese zodiac, the Perth Mint has unveiled the newest installment in the Lunar Series II: the 2015 Silver Year of the Goat.
Composed of 10 troy ounces of .999 pure silver, each coin weighs 311.347g, has a diameter of 85.6mm and is released with an unlimited mintage.
Designed by Natasha Muhl, the reverse features a family of goats grazing in their natural habitat. The Chinese character for ‘goat’ is inscribed, along with YEAR OF THE GOAT and the Perth mintmark, P.
The obverse features Ian Rank-Broadley’s portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, along with the coin’s year and denomination.
Honor those born in the Year of the Goat — while investing in precious metal — with this 10 oz silver coin, now available at Provident Metals.

About the Perth Mint
The Perth Mint was founded in 1899 after gold was discovered in local Australian deposits. The newly-established mint struck gold and silver sovereigns until Great Britain abandoned the gold standard in 1931.
The mint remained under British ownership until July of 1970, when it ceded to the state government of Western Australia. Today, the Perth Mint produces nearly all of the nation’s legal tender bullion coins in its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.

" Design is more beautiful in the hand than in pictures. Flawless coins but the plastic holders are a little scuffed."

" I order this coin along with the 10 oz Kook coin. Both are fantastic, encased in air-tite capsules and unblemished. This beautiful coin was only $2.59/oz over spot which made it a great investment or collector item. I am very please with both the YOTG Lunar coin and the 2015 10 oz Kookaburra coin, and I strongly recommend them to anyone. "
