    Hi,
    A friend has one of the above and wanted further information on it, can anyone direct me as to where I can find some info on it please?
    Just after the usual blurb such as mintage and issue price etc.
    I have tried the PM website and Google but cannot find anything.
    Its a Perth Mint coin in a red box but the cardboard sleeve is plain white.

    Thanks,
    Blake

    I find the PM website terrible for finding archived information. So you are not the only one.

    Hi,
    I sent an e-mail to the Perth Mint and they replied saying it was a coin commissioned by Australia Post and to contact AP in regards to its details.

    I have seen a few post offices with PM 2010 coins at last years prices if anyone is interested, yeah I know: EEEWWWW Nuministics!

    Blake.

    every year AP have 3800 of these half OZ coloured Lunars produced by PM in the red box with the white not so nice cardboard open ended box. PM dont keep a record of them or list them or care about them, probably because they dont care?
    there never advertised anywhere on their site AP-PM and they never seem to go up in value as no body knows where they come from.

    they used to do it with the RAM Roo's but not any more.
