Perth Mint Lunar coins are our most popular Lunar series, and this is a rare chance to grab a Series 1 coin.

These superb releases are perfect for people born in "snake" years - 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001 and 2013 - who are regarded as intellectual, superstitious, skeptical, astute, have elegance, innate wisdom, and possibly some levels of supernatural capability.

The reverse of each coin depicts a coiled with five eggs, one of which is hatching. The Chinese character for "snake" is on the right side of the field. As well as appealing to silver coin collectors, these outstanding releases also make great gifts for people born in any year "ruled" by the Chinese lunar snake.
