Australian Lunar Silver Coin Series II 2013 Year of the Snake
In 2013, The Perth Mint's internationally renowned Australian Lunar Series II celebrates the Year of the Snake, the sixth auspicious animal in the Chinese zodiac.
The birth dates for people ruled by the Chinese Lunar snake include 1905, 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001 and 2013. Those born under the influence of this sign are said to be intelligent, graceful, independent, analytical and charming.
The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.
The coin's high relief reverse and obverse are minted on concave surfaces to ensure the optimum flow of metal is achieved by the strike of the die.
The reverse of the coin depicts a representation of a snake curled around a tree branch. The Chinese character for 'snake' and the inscription 'Year of the Snake' also appear in the design with The Perth Mint's traditional 'P' mintmark.
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse.
No more than 7,500 of these coins will be released.
