After being made available to the public on April 3, the 2017 1 oz Silver Swan coin, the first release of a new series from The Perth Mint, SOLD OUT worldwide in less than two days. The coin’s .9999 fine silver content and low mintage of just 25,000 coins combined for the perfect combination of bullion and collectible appeal. Buyers around the world now anxiously await the second series release.
Similar to well-known Silver coin series like the Kookaburra and Koala, the Swan coins will change designs with each release. The Perth Mint has had much success with these continuing series, as well as other innovative coin designs. The new Silver coin series parallels the rich heritage of the Kookaburra and Koala Series.
While all available Silver Swan coins were quickly claimed, a small portion of the total mintage was sent off for grading. Now for a limited time, you can enter for a chance to win a 2017 1 oz Silver Swan MS-70 PCGS First Strike coin, brought to you by CoinGrade+™ from APMEX. Follow the rules on the online entry form at APMEX.com/CoinGrade and be automatically entered to win a MS-70 Silver Swan coin.
“We were very pleased with the quick sell-thru rate on this new coin. The combination of the design, the limited mintage and The Perth Mint’s history created tremendous worldwide demand. We now have the opportunity to provide one lucky winner a Silver Swan coin guaranteed in perfect-70 condition from PCGS.
