Chards - North West UK Bullion Dealer

In regards to designs and sizes most mints stick to the best-selling one ounce silver coin, the Perth Mint have produced many of their ranges in a variety of weights. The Australian silver lunar series includes ½ oz, 1oz, 2oz, 5oz, 10oz, 1kg and the massive 10kg. Their Koala and Kookaburra series vary between 1/2oz to 1kg. Some sizes are issued to mintage limits which makes certain weights and years very collectable. 

Perth Mint 10 Kilo Coin

The Australian Lunar 10kg silver coin is limited to a 150 mintage each year. These coins are highly sought after and allocations are difficult to secure. These are not necessarily the best value coins but certain collectors are prepared to pay the high premiums to ensure they add the coin to their collection.

British Coins Exempt From Capital Gains Tax

British Legal Tender Coins

Britain’s Royal Mint issues coins such as the BritanniaBritish Lunar and more recently, the Queen’s Beasts. These coins are exempt from capital gains tax which may be an important factor for UK residents.

All of these mints are competing with each other to produce silver bullion which will capture the interest of both collectors and investors.
