If you're looking for attractive 1oz silver bullion coin from a proven series, consider the 2013 Australian Year of the Snake 1 oz silver coin from the Perth Mint. This is the sixth entry in Series II of the long-running Chinese Lunar Zodiac bullion program at the Australian Perth Mint, and is arguably the most popular of all Lunar bullion coins.
Made from 1 troy oz of 99.9% pure silver, this coin features the design on artist Ing Jong on reverse. A snake languidly drapes over a flowering tree branch as it watches the world go by below. According to the Chinese Zodiac, people born under the Year of the Snake are are said to be intellectual, perceptive, and passionate (though they can hide it well.)
The Snake's best friends are the Ox, the Rooster, and the Dragon. Relations with the Tiger and the Pig can be problematic at best. Persons born in 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, and 2013 are said to be born in the Year of the Snake.
These 1 oz Perth Mint Lunar Snake 1 oz silver coins are limited to a mintage of 300,000, and sell out quickly from the mint every year. As a major distributor of Perth Mint products, Gainesville Coins always secures a plentiful supply direct from the Mint each year, as well as the other sizes in bullion and proof strikes.
