Take a closer look at the latest Gilded Edition from the Australian Lunar Series II. Celebrating the Year of the Snake, the pure silver coin portrays a snake that’s gilded in 24 carat-gold – a superb keepsake for anyone born under the influence of the Snake in 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001 and 2013.

  1. Ahh, nice gilded snake and nice video Blog team 🙂

    Last years that nice Perth display box that will hold the series was $75 but now it’s $95.

    I suppose the increase is because of the carbon tax! lol 🙂

    Anyway, great coins Perth but I still want to see a 12 set of kilo gilded lunars at the end of the series; now that would be a stunning!

    Well done. 🙂

  2. Hi Blog team,
    Firstly my compliments for the October release and especially for releasing the ‘piedfort’ so early in the season.

    In addition to what Billy is joking about, “a 12 coin set kilo gilded Snakes”, I am actually very curious about what is stated on the Perth Mint site as forthcoming release in November:
    • Australian Lunar Series II – 2oz Silver Proof Twelve-Coin Collection

    Though I am looking forward to this initiative I recall having mentioned not hoping any ‘upsets’ for rare Lunar issues and if, just if, it would be what I suspect than most collectors of the 3 coin set will most likely have something to complain about.

    Please can you tell us what to expect and whether this includes previous Lunar II coins as 2oz as well?

    Another question relates to another November release:
    • Australian Lunar Series II – 2013 Year of the Snake Silver Proof Coloured Editions

    Apart from the expected 1/2oz, can we expect any other sizes for this coin type?

    Many thanks.



    • Hi Mokum

      There’re more details on the forthcoming 2oz Silver Proof Coloured Collection in this comment section.

      Regarding the Silver Proof Coloured Editions, we will also issue a kilo version (in Australia via The Perth Mint; worldwide via dealers).

      Hope this is useful,

      Kind regards
