  • Description:

    A popular coin in the series, the Australian Lunar Gold 2013 Snake amazes collectors with its high quality and incredible attention to detail. The Perth Mint, the oldest working mint in Australia, decided to start a coin series, based on the Chinese zodiac calendar. This inspirational project started in 1996, with the Year of the Rat, encouraging investors to also begin this series along with avid collectors. Keeping the mintages low, compared to its sister silver series, the Australian Lunar Gold collection became an immediate hit. Not only is an outstanding coin being minted but between its incredible quality and detail, there isn't much to complain about concerning this series.

    The Australian Lunar Gold 2013 Snake is guaranteed to weigh one ounce of .9999 pure gold and is in brilliant uncirculated condition. It claims to be BU but collectors enjoy the slight prooflike features these coins include, creating them to be dimensional and set apart from other bullion coins. The Australian Lunar Gold 2013 Snake is also encapsulated in its original mint-sealed capsule for extra protection. The obverse, of this gold coin, hasn't changed and it includes Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the coin's monetary denomination is also etched beside her. The reverse displays a large snake, suspiciously slithering through reeds and weeds, perhaps locating its next prey. Although the snake symbolizes malice and cunningness in the Chinese culture, it is 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. Also, those born under the year of the snake have a much different temperament. They are known to have wisdom beyond their years and they are great at communication.
