Perth Mint Saltwater Crocodile Sold Out to Dealers Worldwide


Phenomenal interest in the 2014 Australian Saltwater Crocodile coin means that The Perth Mint has now received committed trade orders for 1 million coins.

As a result, we are taking no further orders from wholesale customers worldwide.

A sell out announcement will be made shortly, pending the manufacture and delivery of remaining coins in the mintage.

Made from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver, the Australian Saltwater Crocodile silver bullion coin was launched less than three weeks ago with a maximum mintage of 1 million.

Early indicators suggested the coin, which was available for sale in multiples of 25 at an extremely cost-competitive rate, would be highly successful.

Even so, the speed with which the Mint’s international dealer network responded to the launch has surpassed all expectations.

Thanks you for your outstanding support,
Kind regards,
Neil Vance
