The Perth Mint is making an individual 1/2oz Year of the Snake silver proof coin available worldwide.
This denomination was previously and continues to be part of the Australian Lunar Three-Coin Silver Proof Set, of which no more than 1,000 sets are issued annually.
For the Year of the Snake, we are striking up to 8,000 additional 1/2oz Proof coins for release in individual presentation packaging. Each 2013-dated coin will be accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity bearing a number between 1 and 8,000.
Individual 1/2oz Silver Proof Snakes can only be purchased direct from The Perth Mint – through our website, regular new product bulletin, or our on-site Shop – while stocks last.
Individual kilo and 1oz Proof Snakes, as well as the traditional Three-Coin Set, remain available from The Perth Mint and leading coin dealers.
