One of the Perth Mint's many nature-themed bullion coin series, the Quokka, which depicts a small marsupial native to Western Australia, is now on its third release with the debut of the 2022 coin.

The Perth Mint produced, LPM exclusive silver coin series featuring the Australian Brumby horse, is back for a third release. The main attraction will be the popular bullion coin, of course, but we'll cover that in our bullion round-up on Friday (I'd hoped to have it out yesterday, but one of the coins is still under embargo). Here we [...]

After looking at the new Homer bullion coin yesterday, we're taking a quick dip back into the animated world of one of TV's most dysfunctional families. This time it's Bart, who's appeared on many coins at the Perth Mint over the last few years. Rather than a traditional round coin, however, the mint has decided to tap into [...]

Homer is back! The Perth Mint's very cool 'The Simpson's' silver bullion coin series continues today, with the second solo appearance of the dopey patriarch, Homer. This has always been a good series, jumping between more formal character portraits (of which this is the third), and general scenes from the smash-hit animated TV show, four of those having [...]

Now in its fifth year, the Perth Mint's 'Next Generation: Mother & Baby' series is an unusual one in this popular mints catalogue by having no one-ounce version. Instead, there's a two-ounce coin with a large 75,000 mintage doing the heavy lifting, and a ten-ounce coin capped at 2,500 pieces. Both are effectively piedfort coins, having a diameter [...]

One of the more recent additions to the Perth Mints copious animal-themed bullion coin portfolio, the Wombat series debuted just last year with a neat little silver coin that seemed to be reasonably popular. It's back again, and it follows the classic Perth Mint process, honed over decades of Koala, Kookaburra, and Lunar coins, of depicting the same [...]

Launching in 2018, the Perth Mint’s striking Rectangular Dragon bullion coin series was a pretty departure from the mints typical nature-themed ranges. Available in both gold and silver forms, each an ounce in weight, they carry a new design every year, with quite some variation in artistic style. The 2022 design by Monique Reeves is a fine one, [...]

The genre remains a hugely popular one, and it shows no signs of easing off anytime soon. To be fair, [...]

Launching in 2017, the series is mainly themed around dragons, although there has been a 'Pixiu' coin, and it's fair to say that the overall standard has been very high, especially for [...]
