    INTRODUCING THE PURE GOLD SWAN


    This 1oz gold bullion coin features the new swan design originally released in silver earlier this year.
    This is the first time The Perth Mint has featured this design in gold showcasing one of the world’s most distinct and unique species.

    Struck from 99.99% pure gold, the coin’s literal design visualises the graceful bird in its wetland habitat. In classic profile, the portrayal displays the swans long neck, which enables it to forage for food on the river bed, with broad wings that span up to two metres tucked together on its back.

    Limited to just 5,000 coins, the 2017 Perth Mint Swan 1oz Gold Bullion Coin portrays the graceful icon of Western Australia.

    Apmex also just begin to sell proof version of silver swan coin for 99 USD... Is it a good deal for a 2500 mintage coin?

    Looks great, I would buy it if I had the spare cash. Same price as Roo and slightly cheaper than Dog.

    I doubt they'll offer the same relative secondary premium as the silver Swans though..

    These gold swans, wow. Beautiful in hand. And just a few bucks more than a govt issued eagle or maple? A no brainer, I have no idea why these haven’t sold like hot cakes like the silver proofs. I did get 15 of the silver proofs at a steal of a price too. The silver I’m selling, the gold those get tucked away...hopefully I can buy a few pieces before they sell out. Design change, gold, 5000 minted, beautiful swans, a little more than gold eagles, minted by the Perth Mint...how can these swans not sail to the moon. I think they much better than the bullion panda with an absurd mintage amount and just as much as the swans when factoring in the missing gram. Gooooooo swans.

    The 2017 Gold Swan design is a Perth Mint masterpiece, in my opinion, they knocked this one "outta the park", I think in the future, it will become a sought after coin by many collectors, a timeless classic for the lucky few who get one.
    If the Swan series continues with different designs even for ten years, The 2017 design will be the flagship of the series.

    I've been ummming and ahhhing about getting one of these coins - they certainly look beautiful

    I just wish they came in a case/box with COA, but from what I've read it's just in capsule only which seems a little disappointing considering the low mintage and series

    $140 over spot currently, very tempted to bite the bullet and get one

    These are my thoughts on the swan coins. With the 1st 2017 coin, the more i look at it the more i like it. With the 2nd 2018 the more i look at it the less i like it.

    I agree with JurassicMetal, the 2017 coin is a timeless masterpiece and unfortunately the 2018 fails in comparison. Also I think the 2017 coin looks better in gold then silver. Some coins look better in silver, but the swan definitely shines in gold.

    agree very likeable and the 5000mintage is a big+. lunar mintage is 30k just to compare(but its been running for a while and not everyone likes birds)

    So we all like this coin, but why is it still available? Only 5000 made but it's still available to buy from dealers

    I know it's "Sold out" from Perth Mint, but the dealers are still selling them

    Seems really odd that with only 5000 worldwide they are still available. That makes me think there is not much demand at all for this coin, so therefore maybe not a good buy?

    Yea I'm a bit surprised by this too. So clearly we are a very small group of people that really like this coin (2017) I think this is a coin that will grow on people over time though. The first time i saw it i wasn't overly impressed, but like i said the more i look at it the more i like it.

    The gold coin would have been an easy choice until a few weeks ago as it had almost no extra premium then any other 1oz gold coin/bar. But the silver coin premiums doesn't make sense to me.

    btw I saw Bullion Money put up the premiums on the gold coin by another $65 a few weeks ago. Which to my knowledge they were recently selling it for the lowest price anywhere (about $80 above spot).

    As for the new 2018 coin, I'm not going to buy any. I wouldn't even pay $30 for the BU one, i literally have no interest in it.

    Perth mint sold out to dealers but not many collectors to buy it.

    Same scheme like the stock horse and eagle first issue which sold out very fast and many flippers bought bunch of it. They hype and flip.

    Not many real collectors love of it and keep for Long term. This has been repeating over and over. Nothing’s new and many of us know it

    I have a few and don’t plan on letting go of them. I think they’re a great long term hold. I think the whole market is in a slump, with select few issues doing well. Plus, 80+ GSR favors folks buying silver, no matter the attractiveness, beauty and mintage of the yellow meta. I know I am.
