Each of the 2013 Australian Lunar Snake 2 oz Silver Coins is thoughtfully presented in protective plastic capsules. Remarkably, this release marks the midpoint of the Lunar Series II collection, being the sixth design in a series of 12 unique coins. The design, crafted by Ing Ing Jong, holds special significance as the artist’s inaugural contribution to the Lunar Series, with more lunar designs for Perth Mint to follow.

Obverse

On the obverse of these 2013 Australian Lunar Snake Silver Coins, a right-profile relief of Queen Elizabeth II, adorned with the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara, takes center stage. This design, conceptualized by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998, adds a touch of regality to the coin. Inscriptions on this side read ELIZABETH II, AUSTRALIA, 2 OZ 999 SILVER, 2013, and 2 DOLLARS.

Reverse

Turning to the reverse side, the 2013 Lunar Snake 2 oz Silver Coins showcase Ing Ing Jong’s inaugural design in the Lunar Series. The image portrays a snake elegantly coiled on the branch of a tree. In Chinese astrology, snakes are believed to have harmonious relationships with the Ox and Rooster, while facing potential challenges with the Tiger. The inscriptions here include YEAR OF THE SNAKE, the Chinese symbol for a snake, and the P mint mark.

History

Red, yellow, and black are considered auspicious colors for people born in the Year of the Snake. Some famous individuals born in the Year of the Snake include Bob Dylan, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Oprah Winfrey, and Abraham Lincoln.
