    Toning should not be a big issue if they still kept in wrapped roll.

    Toning will not only reduce value, sometimes it would create a nice looking coin with high price.

    Some recent sales on eBay.
    10oz Dragons @ $388
    1/2oz Dragons @ $25
    1oz Snake with privy @ $45
    1oz Horse roll @ $838
    1oz Horse with privy roll @ $828
    Take 14% off for eBay and PayPal and that should be a fair price here.
    Also sold a 1oz roll of Dragons for $1100 to a private customer with registered International shipping thrown in. After shipping and PayPal fees I have still netted over $1000
    Some sellers here are shortchanging themselves selling their lunars too cheap.
    The trouble is there is a lot of selfish sellers here who delete pricing on their listings as soon as their coins are sold.
    They are happy to take information from other sellers but won't share!

    1 oz Ag 2000 S1 Perth Mint Lunar Dragon: asking $80 on this forum...

    More for the same size and series Ox.

    If there's a "for sale" listing without recent photographs, detailed descriptions and pricing - well...

    The S1 and S2 overlap in production as well as market crash 2008 lulled purchases of both series.
    Simply look @ mint totals of both series, and denominations.
    The 2oz S1 are exponentially priced during this easily measured lack of demand time period.
    The dragon was sold like a cheap whore and there are millions (S) of them real and fake.
    Fill set with one or two from 1/2 oz to kilo and call it good enough.

    Buying and selling previous years...
    Often purchasing previous mint of coming years mintage is least expensive.
    Then can be sold in 3-400 days at profit, to set fillers as ex. S2 Rooster is here.
    Beware that interest in "old" coins is not a passion amongst millenials, series 1 is "old" now.
    Never forget societies attention span is short, absent of foresight(the only separation of humans from all species), and hindsight non-existant.
    Here, we are amongst ourselves, so utilize our species advantages.

    Isn't this becuase most were sold overseas, also could have been purchased by funds or very rich and languishing in a vault.

    LOOK. A tiny amount sold. No 300,000 limit needed as 240,000 remained.
    No rich pirate, poor masses and market crashes.


    Mintage
    Declared
    Mintage
    2009 The Australian Lunar Silver Coin Series $1 1oz Bullion Lunar Silver Ox Coin 2009 Year of the Ox mint to order 52,267

    2010 The Australian Lunar Silver Coin Series $30 1kg Bullion Lunar Silver Tiger Coin 2010 Year of the Tiger mint to order 1,888

    2010 The Australian Lunar Silver Coin Series $2 2oz Bullion Lunar Silver Tiger Coin 2010 Year of the Tiger mint to order 6,520

    2010 The Australian Lunar Silver Coin Series $1 1oz Bullion Lunar Silver Tiger Coin 2010 Year of the Tiger mint to order 56,077


    Go look at all of 'em and the trends set by; limits, spot price, market condition, popularity(dragon & horse), novelty S2, and commonality S1 in tandem, as well as compare to amounts of 1/2 and
    2 oz sales. Tell someone there is a limit and they buy more of more... worth less. Rather than more of less, worth more. HHHmmmmm brilliant people can be; sometimes.

    Considering such glance at the 2015 Kook sales as they did NOT sell out. First time in many years and by a wide margin.
    I attribute this to competition of decorative rounds, and coins from many countries, as well as premium from hell at Perth.
    Even though premium is covered in resale at retail or private, not sale back to retail however.

    I think you will find the 2015 kooks are sold out at PM, the webpage you listed
    has an error in regards to the coins series year and the description year being different

    All previous s2 1oz silver lunars have sold out at the max mintage of 300,000

    Yes, the overlap caused the last three series 1 coins and the S2 mouse's sales
    to be lower until the mouses subsequent remint.

    It was not until the tiger that on-line sellers here ie bullionbourse started selling
    PM coins at substantially cheaper premiums than what was previously available
    through the PM and coin shops, so some tigers and all following years were bought
    up by in bulk by stackers, so a larger percentage of the issues are/were held by stackers
    many of whom were keen to flip for a profit or still hold as the case may be


    But from my understanding the s2 oxen in particular went OS and seem held by
    stronger hands than the rest of the series that were bought up mainly by stackers
    here who generally flip for profit, it is hard to find a roll of oxen for sale now.

    If the mouse had not been reminted it would now be the key coin, but as we all
    well know they did remint.

    The tiger is a nice looking coin and a good lunar year

    So even though all coins have equal mintages the Oxen is harder to source
    followed by the tiger, thats is how it stands at present, in future maybe another
    year might be hot, I like the horse in particular, these seem to off the boil at present

    The series one are a different matter, more went OS and a greater percentage were
    bought by collectors rather than stackers, also mintages were generally under 100k each
    and mint premiums were higher than current mint premiums especially in silver content
    percentage terms.

    I think you are confusing S1 and S2 issues a bit in general in your post.

    cheers grant

    From Perth Mint listed mintage:
    DISCLAIMER:
    "The information, details, statistics and figures contained here which relates to mintages and sales figures for all Australian Legal tender Coins, produced, marketed and initially distributed by the Perth Mint since 1986, have been prepared, collated and published here as accurate and correct to the best of the Perth Mint's knowledge and belief."
    edit: Updated since, I do not know. Yes 2015 sold out. 2016 about a mile to go. Perth & CDN mints are sketchy time updating, like US is with totals.

    What was stated in my post looked at both S1 & S2 series mint totals.
    The psychology of purchasers and comprehension thereof is the easiest to judge interest, by looking at the unlimited 1/2 oz & 2 oz of same years.




    "So even though all coins have equal mintages the Oxen is harder to source
    followed by the tiger, thats is how it stands at present, in future maybe another
    year might be hot, I like the horse in particular, these seem to off the boil at present"

    But all coins do not. Some, certainly so.
    Not confusing as all, is supply and demand.
    Exception being, imposed control of supply.
