Two of the hottest annual semi-numismatic silver coin series are the the silver Lunar coins and silver Kookaburra coins from the Perth Mint. With mintage limits of 300,000 for the 1 oz silver Lunar coin, and 500,000 for the silver Kookaburra, these particular coins are a fast sell-out every year. Another big hit every year is the silver Koala coins. This argent representations of Australia's cuddliest marsupial have an enthusiastic following of their own, and have no mintage limit.
The Kookaburra celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2015, with a dual-date 1990-2015 year and a return to the original 1990 kookaburra design. This one is expected to have an even higher demand than normal. The 2015 silver Lunar coins commemorate the Year of the Goat in the Chinese lunar calendar, with a scene of a goat family in a forested meadow. This year, the silver Koala literally broadens its horizons with a design showing a kola in the fork of a eucalyptus tree, with the broad expanse of the Australian outback stretching behind him.
