Australian Lunar Series
The Perth Mint has released the first of the 2013 "Year of the Snake" Silver Coins to the American Public. Minted as part of the Australian Silver Lunar Coin Series, these coins have limited worldwide mintages and a new design each year representing the ancient Chinese Lunar Calendar. The magnificent Silver Coins are struck in .999 fine Silver and are now available in the large Kilo size Silver Bullion Coin.
The Perth Mint has created an exceptional design for the Year of the Snake Silver series. An image of a Snake is finely detailed on the reverse. The Chinese symbol for Snake appears, along with the English inscription "Year of the Snake." The "P" mint mark for the Perth Mint also appears.
The obverse of the coin features Queen Elizabeth II. The inscriptions read "Elizabeth II", "Australia", the date "2013", "999 Silver", and the 1 oz. weight and denomination of the coin. Each coin is recognized as official legal tender of Australia.
Due to their high Silver content, prices will change daily and these coins will increase in price with rising Silver prices in the years to come. Please call our Silver Coin specialist for the availability of other Silver Coin sizes.
Each coin has been carefully minted to the highest standards and then encapsulated in a protective acrylic capsule, at the mint to protect the delicate features and fine details of each coin. Newly minted issues like this are guaranteed to be in Gem Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
These are ideal gifts for anyone born in the "Year of the Snake" and for those adding more Silver to their portfolio buy early before we're sold out completely.
