The new silver for sale in the Lunar Series III collection debuts with the Year of the Mouse design. As the third series, the Perth Mint offers a third new design of the mouse for its landmark program. Ing Ing Jong returns as the designer for the series, delivering two designs for the three bullion versions.
The Lunar Series collections from the Perth Mint include designs from Ing Ing Jong. Hired by the Perth Mint in 2011, Ms. Jong began working on the Lunar Series II collection in 2013 and has completed designs in various years since. She now offers designs for the launch of the Lunar Series III program. She has separate designs for the silver bullion and gold bullion coins, with the new platinum bullion option sharing the gold coin design.
