The 2013 Perth 1/2 oz Silver Year of the Snake Series II Coin makes for a great addition to any silver collection. These coins are a part of the Perth Mint's Lunar Series, one of their more popular series. The Perth Mint Lunar Series Coins are based on the Chinese Lunar calendar, which cycles every 12 years. People born under the sign of the Snake are thought to be charming, materialistic, graceful, and analytical.
The front of the coin displays a detailed snake hanging from the branch of a Chinese plum tree. Below the snake is inscribed the words, "Year of the Snake," and beside the snake, the Chinese symbol for 'snake' appears. The reverse of the coin features a profile of Queen Elizabeth II with the words, "Elizabeth II, Australia, 1/2 oz Silver, 2013," and the monetary denomination of the coin at, "50 Cents."
After working for more than a century with precious metals, the Perth Mint is one of the most trusted names in the business. Perth began as a branch of Britain's Royal Mint in 1899, but in 1970, ownership passed to the Western Australian government. These coins are issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act of 1965. Order yours today!
