Lunar Series III coins debuted in 2020 from the Perth Mint with the Year of the Mouse release. There were several notable elements introduced into the Lunar Series III collection with its official launch. Among them, the new sixth-generation bust of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse and the inclusion of a new security feature on the reverse that is only visible under magnification.
The Lunar Series III collection offers 1/2 oz, 1 oz, 2 oz, 5 oz, 10 oz, and 1 Kilo silver coins as the primary options for investors. A low number of 10 kilo coins are offered, with the 2020 Year of the Mouse boasting just 10 silver coins in total in that weight! As for these 5 oz silver coins in the release, the Perth Mint uses an unlimited mintage, meaning the coins will continue to be struck through the end of 2021 as long as there is demand for the coins.
