Brisbane Bullion presents the 1/2oz Lunar Snake Silver Coin (2013) from the Australian Lunar Series II by the Perth Mint. 

This is the 6th coin in a set of 12.  The Perth Mint’s Lunar Series II from the Perth Mint began with the Year of the Mouse (2008), with one coin being released each year.  Still to be released to complete this series are the Lunar Coins celebrating The Year of the Dog (16 February 2018 to 4 February 2019) and The Year of the Pig (5 February 2019 to 24 January 2020).

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.

Traditionally, the first year of the lunar cycle is ‘ruled’ by the mouse. 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.

Struck from 999 pure silver, these Australian legal tender coins would make an ideal gift for parents who had a child born during the period 10 February 2013 to 30 January 2014.
