We’re delighted to be able to offer you two Coin Show Specials from the weekend’s ANDA event in Perth.

Both coins, which are subject to very tight Issue Limits, come in special Perth ANDA packaging.

2013 Year of the Snake – Success 1oz Silver Proof Coin

Struck from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality and issued as legal tender of Tuvalu, this coin portrays a representation of the staff of the Roman god Mercury, flanked by Mercury and Fortuna, both symbolising ‘success’ and ‘abundance’.

Issue Limit: 2,013 (from a maximum mintage of 5,513)

 

2013 Australian Lunar – Year of the Snake 2oz Silver Coloured Edition

Struck from 2oz of 99.9% pure silver, this Australian legal tender coin depicts a green and yellow tree snake wrapped around a tree branch. The Chinese character for ‘snake’ also appears in the design.

Issue Limit: 1,000 (from a maximum mintage of 40,000)

Year of the Snake – 10 February 2013 to 30 January 2014

Today is the start of the Year of the Snake, the sixth sign of the Chinese zodiac. Just as a snake sheds its skin, snake years are said to bring rebirth and renewal, as well as the potential for great prosperity!

Those born under the influence of this sign are said to be wise, soft-spoken, compassionate, analytical and charming. They are natural leaders, known for their courage and determination.

Famous people born in the year of the snake include Abraham Lincoln (1809), Mohandas Gandhi (1869), Pablo Picasso (1881), John F Kennedy (1917), Martin Luther King (1929), and Bob Dylan (1941).

Our stand at World Money Fair in Berlin attracted plenty of attention last weekend, as did this year’s Coin Show Special. Struck from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver, no more than 5,000 of these Coloured Snake coins are available in exclusive WMF 2013 presentation packaging. Remaining stocks of this special release can now be purchased via our online collector coin shop.
