  • Description:

    Being nothing short of amazing detail and great quality from the Perth Mint, these silver snake coins come in brilliant uncirculated condition with amazing proof-like qualities and are delivered in their mint sealed capsules for protection. As stated on the front of the coin, they contain a half ounce pure .999 silver. Although a snake being discovered in one's garden usually means delight is brought to that household, the snake represents malice, immaturity, and mystery. The snake is not as esteemed as the Dragon in Chinese culture even though their years fall next to each other. One popular Chinese tradition is to paint a snake, wrapped around a rabbit, onto the door of all the houses. This symbol is meant to bring wealth to those households. People born under the Year of the Snake tend to be financially secure, wise, and are good at communicating when they choose to do so.

    The reverse of the coin reveals a female snake protecting her nest of hatching eggs. The year, 2001, is written vertically on the left hand side of the snake, while the 1/2 oz. .999 silver is stated underneath the territorial mother snake. The obverse of the silver coin displays the famous Ian Rank-Broadly portrait of Queen Elizabeth II and the coin's denomination, which is 50c. "Australia" is written around the Queen's portrait indicating the production by the Perth Mint. Unlike their one ounce counterparts, the half ounce Australian Lunar coins have a more accessible mintage, making them for attainable for collectors and investors. As you will find with smaller types of silver bullion, they carry a higher premium because of their small size. Luckily, because these half ounce wonders are coins, these premiums are made up for with their numismatic and intrinsic values.
