  • Description:

    The fifth installment of the 12-coin series, Australian Lunar Gold 2013 Snake coin dazzles collectors with its outstanding workmanship. The Perth Mint started this series to celebrate the Chinese zodiac calendar, which is an ancient system connecting animals and humans to birth years. This calendar is known to tell the fortune of a person, depending on the year they were born into. Being nothing short of amazing detail and great quality from the Perth Mint, these pure silver snake coins come in brilliant uncirculated condition and are delivered encapsulated from the mint. The Perth Mint is also producing more coins in the Australian Lunar Series II with a higher mintage than the first series but it still is limited every year.

    The Australian Lunar Gold 2013 Snake is guaranteed to weigh 1/2 ounce of .9999 pure gold and is in brilliant uncirculated condition. Adding a more life-like dimension to the coins, the Perth Mint designs the animals to be more proof-like with its finish. The Australian Lunar Gold 2013 Snake is also encapsulated in its original mint-sealed capsule for extra protection. The reverse displays a large snake, suspiciously slithering through reeds and weeds, perhaps locating its next prey. The Chinese symbol for Snake and "Year of the Snake" are delicately etched into the coin's surface. Famous sculptor's Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II is featured on the obverse and also contains the coin's legal tender value. Those born under the year of the snake have a much different temperament than what their zodiac animal represents. They are known to have wisdom beyond their years and great wit. They are also calm, sensitive, gifted in literature and the arts. Even though the snake embodies cunningness, malice, and enjoys hanging out in the darkness, it is actually good luck to find a snake in your garden. In ancient times, the symbol of a snake wrapping itself around a rabbit was good luck and indicated wealth.
