Product Details

This 2013 1 kilo Proof Silver Lunar Year of the Snake Coin was struck by the Perth Mint in .999 fine silver, and measures nearly 4 inches in diameter. Only 500 of these coins were minted as the sixth release from the Australian Lunar Series II. These coins are Australian legal tender, and are therefore backed and guaranteed by the Australian Government. The Perth Mint packaged each of these coins in a red and black presentation case, within a decorated shipper box. The coin is also accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.

On the reverse of this coin is an image of a Snake, which is the animal that represents the year 2013, according to Chinese culture. The Snake is one of twelve spirit animals to represent specific years in the Chinese Lunar Zodiac Calendar. Here, the Snake is pictured draped over a tree branch. Beneath his head is the Chinese symbol for “snake,” and the Perth Mint's “P” mintmark appears to its right. The bottom rim of the coin reads, “Year of the Snake.”

The coin's obverse pays homage to Queen Elizabeth II, the reigning Queen of Australia. The designer, Ian Rank-Broadley, depicts Her Majesty with an aged face, wearing a tiara amid her curls. She is encircled by inscriptions stating her name, the coin's country of origin, weight and purity, mintage year and denomination.
