Perth Mint - 10 Kilo Silver Bullion Coin

I just bought mine and won't open it up just keep it sealed so if I sell it the buyer will get it just as I did from the Perth Mint. Check it out on Ebay. I wish the video included the pressing, and wonder what the other "hours" of work to make the coin perfect. I guess polishing etc. I had the ten kilo tiger but sold it, so had to hop right over to the rabbit. My listing is under RICKSNEWSTORE on Ebay.I am glad Europeans appreciate enjoy these stunning minted works of art. American coin collectors are so cynical about these things. All they care about is investment...not the beauty of the coin. If the price is more than a few bucks over melt, US coin collectors are ready criticize.

A spectacular investment coin weighing 10 kilograms has been released by The Perth Mint. Made from 99.9% pure silver, the large Australian Lunar bullion release celebrates the 2011 Year of the Rabbit. This video shows part of the production process involved in making such a large Australian legal tender coin. Limited to a maximum mintage of 500, it can be purchased at while stocks last.
