As the theme of the dragon from the year 2012, the Snake is part of the Australian Lunar Series II. This series was coined in the first edition from 1996 to 2007. Since the year 2008 the coinage of the Lunar Series II is produced.
The distinctive identifying feature of the Lunar series are the beautiful animal themes of the Chinese lunar calendar, which change annually. 2013 is the year of the snake. The snake is always seen as the seductress of the human race. In reality, snakes are mostly charming and peaceful. People who were born in the year of the snake (1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013) are often seen as witty, sophisticated, aware and intuitive.
Unlike other bullion coins, the coins of the Lunar 1 oz denominations are limited with a maximum circulation figure per year. Because of the limitation you can profit by the increase of the price of gold or silver and also by a price increase due to the demand of older years and special designs.
