These two coloured coins are teeming with imagery symbolising Chinese good fortune – a treasure chest full of golden coins to represent ‘wealth’; an abacus, a calligraphy pen, an hour glass, an ancient map and a pyramid to signify ‘wisdom’.

A limited release made from pure silver, it’s a double delight for anyone born in the Year of the Snake – 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001 and 2013.

  1. Dear Perth,

    I guess this is the very first product of your new Mintage Policy where in addition to the 1500 set in this particular packaging (2 set coin), you will mint additional 3500 coin for each coin design.
    Is this the case?

    In addition to the 3000 set of 4 coin set rectangular Snake from Cooks Island, how many more individual coins would you make (or are allowed to mint)?

    With the rabbit & dragon, in additional to the 4 coin set, you surprised collectors with additional 3000 individual coins for the rectangular dragon from Cooks Island which I believe were sold outside Australia.
    Will you do the same to the snake?

    Would you tell us how many coins are you allowed to mint or maximum coins of the individual design for the Cooks Island set?

    We also need to know in advance how many coins would be minted for oversea market because they count towards the total mintage.

    Please do limit your mintage because the numismatic market of your coins is really dying off now because of you minting beyond your old mintage policy.


    • Hi Goblue

      Yes it is the very first, consequently, although the certificates were already printed our marketing materials reflected the maximum mintage which is 5,000. Of these 1,500 are in the sets you mention and 3,500 have been sold overseas.

      The maximum mintage of the rectangular snake coin is 10,000, of which 3,000 are in sets and the balance can be sold as individual coins. Some have already been sold as individual coins.

      The new mintage policy dictates that the Maximum mintage will be declared in advance, we are adopting this policy immediately but some certificates and packaging components are already printed so please look at the marketing material related to any new releases as this will give you the maximum mintage.
