One Ounce Silver Bullion Coins
Australia first issued a one ounce silver bullion coin, the Kookaburra, in 1990.
In 1999, it was decided to issue a Chinese Lunar Year series of silver bullion coins, following the success of the gold versions which started in 1996.

In 1992, the Perth Mint introduced large silver bullion coins, in weights of two ounce, ten ounces and one kilogramme (31.1 ounces). For 2004 there are also half ounce, five ounce, and half kilo versions.
This years "Chinese Lunar Year" series is available in all 7 weights.

2004 Issue
We have stocks for immediate delivery of six different sizes, but unfortunately the one ounce coin has now sold out and as Series II has now started production, the Perth Mint will not be making any more. If you would like a one ounce silver Lunar Monkey you will probably have to wait until 2016!
Many people ask us for next year's coins in the approach to New Year, and we believe that these will be very popular this year.
If you had two complete sets, you could play "Towers of Hanoi" with them.
The Australian coins are made to very high standards of design and production. Each coin also comes in its own protective plastic capsule.
