Those who are born in the Year of the Snake are considered to be creative and diligent in all that they do. Called Snakes in China, these individuals are often easily bored at work and are known to hop from job to job. They are also exceptionally confident.

The 2013 Colorized Proof Australian Lunar Snake 1/2 oz Silver Coin features a mirrored background, frosted imagery and a fully colorized beautifully designed snake.


The obverse design of the 2013 Colorized Proof Australian Lunar Snake 1/2 oz Silver Coin features the right-profile portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The design was created by sculptor and artist Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998 and depicts Her Majesty at around 68 years of age.


The reverse of the 2013 Colorized Proof Australian Lunar Snake 1/2 oz Silver Coin features a colorized depiction of the Year of the Snake design. In this image, the snake is coiled around a tree branch, with colors that give him a black body with patches of yellow scales. Also included on the reverse design of the coin are the words Year of the Snake and the Chinese symbol for snake.

Each 2013 Colorized Proof Australian Lunar Snake 1/2 oz Silver Coin ships protected in the signature black and red Perth Mint box. This not only provides protection to your coin but also offers a great way to display your new addition.
