The Perth Mint has a reputation for producing some of the most coveted silver coins in the world. The Lunar Series II has the distinction of being one of these coveted collections, appreciated by the investor and collector alike. The Perth Mint released a new design each year, based upon the Chinese Lunar calendar. The 2013 Australian Colorized Lunar Snake Gemstone Eye 1 Kilo Silver Coin is the 6th design released in the series, and represents the Year of the Snake. The coin contains 31.15 Troy oz of .999 pure silver and has a face value of $30, which is full backed by the Australian government.
With the release of each new design in the Lunar Series II, the Perth Mint of Australia pays tribute to a new year on the Chinese Lunar Calendar. Featuring 12 different animals, the Zodiac cycle has a 12-year cycle.
The 2013 Australian Colorized Lunar Snake Gemstone Eye 1 Kilo Silver Coin is the sixth design in the Lunar Series II program. The program launched in 2008, following the success of the Lunar Series I coins. The Lunar Series I was released between 1996 to 2007.
The obverse design of the 2013 Australian Colorized Lunar Snake Gemstone Eye 1 Kilo Silver Coin features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown in right-profile relief on the obverse of all Australian coinage. In this particular portrait, brought to life in 1998, Her Majesty is shown at 68. Ian Rank-Broadley is the Royal Mint artist who imaged this effigy.
On the reverse design of the 2013 Australian Colorized Lunar Snake Gemstone Eye 1 Kilo Silver Coin features the colorized image of a tree snake coiled around the branch of a tree. It is colored primarily in black, with a few scales featuring yellow colorization. If you look at the snakes eye, you will see a small black diamond placed as the eye. The black diamond signifies wisdom.
