Singapore Mint Lunar Year Gold Coins

 The Singapore Mint began production of their lunar coin series in 1984. The series ran through 1995. The Chinese Lunar Calendar runs in twelve year cycles and names each of the twelve years after an animal. Legend has it that the Lord Buddha summoned all the animals to come to him before he departed from earth. Only twelve came to bid him farewell and as a reward he named a year after each one in the order they arrived. The Chinese believe the animal ruling the year in which a person is born has a profound influence on personality, saying: "This is the animal that hides in your heart."

The coins were minted in pure .999 fine gold and are available in 1/20, 1/10, 1/4, 1/2, and 1 ounce sizes. Mintages were very low for the Singapore Lunar Gold Coin Series (see chart below). Many of these coins have been put into jewelry over the years leaving few mint condition specimens for collectors. All of our Singapore Lunar gold coins are in choice, mint condition with most of them in their original packaging.

Platinum and Silver lunar year coins with the same design were also produced.

River City Coins & Jewelry also stocks a large selection of 14K gold bezels if you wish to make your coin into a piece of jewelry. (See below)

Shipping and handling charges are added to all orders at checkout and are based on the total amount of your order from our site (see chart below). Rates quoted are for shipment to U. S. addresses only. International orders are not accepted. In many cases, we may have only one of any specific coin so please do not order more than one of each without checking with us first. To inquire of quantity available or if you have other questions, please phone 573-334-1108 or email Rvrcoins@swbell.net
