Description

In 2013, The Perth Mint's internationally renowned Australian Lunar Silver Proof Coin Series II celebrated the Year of the Snake, the sixth animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac.

These superb proof quality releases are perfect for people born in "snake" years - 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001 and 2013 - who are regarded as intellectual, superstitious, skeptical, astute, have elegance, innate wisdom, and possibly some levels of supernatural capability.

The reverse of each coin depicts a coiled snake hanging from 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. As well as appealing to silver proof coin collectors, these outstanding releases also make great gifts for people born in any year "ruled" by the Chinese lunar snake.
