2013 1oz Lunar Snake Gold Coin

snake - wisdom, determination, prosperity.

Gold Coast Bullion is proud to present the 2013 1oz Australian Lunar Series Snake Gold Coin from The Perth Mint.

Reputedly the oldest chronological record in history, the ancient Chinese Lunar Calendar dates back beyond 2,600 BC. Based on the appearance of the new moon, it associates a different animal with each year in the 12-year lunar cycle. According to legend, the order of the animals in Chinese astrology was determined by their race across a river. Unknown to the ox, the mouse hitched a ride on its back, leaping to victory at the very last second. The tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig followed the quick-thinking mouse and the flabbergasted ox to dry land. 

In Chinese culture, each animal is believed to influence the personality of the people born under its ‘rule’. The snake is the sixth sign of the Chinese zodiac. The snake is a symbol of wisdom and is believed to bring good luck and prosperity. Those born under the influence of this sign are said to be wise, independent, analytical, graceful and charming. They are natural leaders, known for their courage and determination.

Coin Highlights:

  • Contains 1oz or 31.1g of 9999 Fine Gold
  • Australian Legal Tender with government backed purity guarantee and face value of #specs_Denomination#
  • Protective plastic capsule and presentation packaging.

The obverse shows the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2013 year-date, the weight and the monetary denomination.
