The issue is that the Perth guys did an okay job with this dragon coin. However look at the rat, ox and tiger crap out there. I would rather buy the first spouse. Okay may be not, but you get the point.
This is the same in case with Britannia. When Nathan was the designer, they had awesome designs. Now who ever is designing that series is "over-doing" it and crapping it up.
Nothing like the series 1 lunars, except that fatso pig from 2007. I believe that is when the mint outsourced the designing, and starting 2007, the designs went to the toilet.
But I have to say that the 2 ounce coins are the way to go. They are so so beautiful and hefty.
Mirkannen - do you own a 2 ounce Series 2?
