Product Information

 

This year's stunning Gilded Edition from the Australian Lunar Series II depicts the wise and lucky snake, the sixth animal in the Chinese lunar calendar.

Specimen Quality 99.9% Pure Silver

The coin is meticulously struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in specimen quality. 

Stunning Gilded Design

The coin's reverse depicts a snake curled around a tree branch, gilded in 24-carat gold.  Gold is said to symbolise wealth and happiness.  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.
