The 1 oz Silver Goat 2015 and the 1 oz Gold Goat coins have a limited mintage of 300,000 and 30,000 respectively. Typically the Year of the Goat isnt considered an exciting animal unlike the recent Lunar Year animals like the Dragon, Horse and Tiger. However if the past years are anything to go by, these coins will sell out very quickly from the Perth Mint. The only other coins in the Lunar Year series which have a limited mintage are the 10 kg Silver and gold coins. These coins are restricted to approx 100 by the Perth Mint. It is also worth noting the Year of the Goat had very strong sales in the Lunar Series 1 released by Perth Mint.
Year of the Goat Images now released!
