    Hi all

    Out of interest as very little chat on line here about the recently released lunar Mouse has any stacker purchased the 1/2oz or 2oz as yet ?

    Anyone know of what dealers in Australia that have them stock now or perhaps someone looking to sell a few of each of these sizes

    Appreciate a PM

    Thanks

    Got a 2020 1oz lunar mouse today, but really disappointed with what Perth Mint did to the back of the coin.

    Left is the 2020 lunar mouse and right is what's normally found of PM premium coins. The new lunar has way too much matte where it looks cheap. I much prefer where the outer ring is polished. it's a shame as it's otherwise a nice looking coin.

    That's really disappointing

    The matte finish is what you'd expect on cheaper releases like the Croc and Funnel Web of previous years - not on Lunars

    That sucks

    Yea it is disappointing, Perth Mint have really hit rock bottom. Sad to see them go down this cheap and gimmicky path, they have really ruined their reputation.

    am I missing something? series 2 lunars were the same matte on the obverse - nothing has changed besides the blanks they use (smaller diameter)

    yes series 2 are matte, but different design on the back. series 3 design is the same design as series 1, but with the outer ring being matte now.
