Lunar Series II Silver Coins for Sale
The Lunar Series II Silver has been minted each year since 2008. The successor of the popular Lunar I series, these coins are based on the basic theme of that earlier series. The Lunar I series is no longer in production, but due to the popularity of the first, the Lunar II series has served as a seamless continuation. The design and dimensions of series two are slightly different than the first series, but each one continues to feature an annually changing animal motif based on the lunar calendar. These were produced by the Perth Mint from 1996 through 2007 in a series of twelve. Each year features a different animal corresponding to the Chinese lunar calendar. Each one also features quality embossing, and originally came in a high-quality wooden storage case.
