As we are getting closer to the end of the Lunar 2 series, and in spite of the fact that the spot price of silver is in the gutter (as compared to just a few years ago), I was curious to see what prices on the first coin of the Perth Mint Lunar 2 series are like. I'm looking at eBay which often has the lowest open market prices (available for U.S. customers) for back issues of this series and it appears as if prices are holding for the 2008 silver Mouse...even the colored coins seem to be generally holding price. That's not to say that other Lunar animals of this series aren't performing even better...some are doing considerably better in terms of current sales prices. Then you have pieces like this which seem to be well over priced.... http://www.ebay.com/itm/2008-Austra...625335?hash=item5b14a8b7b7:g:OAYAAOSwjVVVk~0D This is not my coin nor do I know the seller...just came across the listing while looking at prices. Where can we expect prices on the 2008 Mouse to go as the series ends in 2019? Though not the most popular animal in the series, it is the first of the series and the design is actually excellent in my opinion (comparatively to the other designs in this series). Sure, some of the other Lunar animals in this series are commanding routinely higher prices, but is the Mouse a sleeper coin of this series (not so hot now but will be when the series closes)? .
