Provident Metals’ valued customers have patiently awaited the 2013 Year of the Snake One Ounce Silver Coin. Now available for order, each of these Year of the Snakes contain 1 Troy Ounce of .999 Pure Silver, guaranteed by the Australian government.
The reverse of each 2013 Silver Year of the Snake features the scaly reptile perched atop a tree branch, next to the Chinese symbol for “snake.” Below it is the mint mark ‘P,’ along with the words “Year of the Snake.”
The coin’s obverse boasts the profile of Queen Elizabeth II as designed by Ian Rank-Broadley, along with the year 2013 and the coin’s fineness, weight and denomination. No more than 300,000 Year of the Snake 1 oz Silver Coins will be released.
The 2013 Year of the Snake is the latest addition to Australia’s Lunar Series II, which initially debuted in 2008. Each coin celebrates an animal from the Chinese Lunar Calendar. People born between February 10, 2013 and January 30, 2014 will be born in the Year of the Snake, and it is said they will be independent, charming and intelligent.
The Perth Mint was founded in 1899 at the insistence of Western Australia’s first Premier, Sir John Forrest, after gold was discovered in nearby deposits. The newly-established mint struck gold and silver sovereigns until Great Britain abandoned the gold standard in 1931, but remained under British control until 1970.
