    The latest 2,500 silver proof swan coins featuring the majestic icon of Western Australia offers an exciting opportunity for avid collectors. As the 2017 swan coin sold out in a matter of days, the 2018 design is certain to be just as popular featuring the graceful swan with her cygnet.

    2018 Swan Design
    The coin’s reverse depicts the unique animal emblem of Western Australia swimming gracefully on the surface of the water with her cygnet. The design includes the inscription THE 1oz 9999 AUSTRALIAN SILVER SWAN and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

    Perth Mint has declared the 2018 Australian Silver Swan 1 oz silver "proof" issue as "sold out", I wonder who got them, very few listed on ebay as of today (all in Australia), Apmex suggests that they will have them coming soon, but none are on sale yet. My guess is someone with "deep pockets" purchased most of them to get them slabbed up and properly price inflated.

    Wow!! That’s awesome. I’d been waiting for 2 weeks too, checking every morning...lol...but of all times to have a 9am meeting. Go figure. I had to excuse myself and order, but by the time I did was already up to 33.00. I had to hold my nose on a few rolls. He who hesitates loses $140.00 per roll out of the gate. Lol. Oh well. By the time I called he said that 10 k already moved! I figure even with 46 they’ll be gone next week. Not sure why some folks don’t like them, I think they’re as nice as the first. I took a pass at the proofs. Those are 89.00, tell me they didn’t go out at 69.00 again...lol. Thanks much

    I bought Swan 1 BU from Apmex at USD$23.81 last year. Max 300pcs at that time.

    Apmex got smarter this time by selling higher at USD$26.85 and max 100pcs per customer on Swan 2 BU.

    Hopefully you maxed out this time at that price. And just sell the rolls for a quick profit Lol.
