Introduction

As a long-term partner of the Perth Mint, Tavex is pleased to offer one of world’s finest minted gold bullion coins, the 2013 Australian Lunar Year of the Snake. The gold coin is part of Perth Mint’s praised chronological gold bullion collection, the Australian Lunar Series II, where each coin in the series is only minted once every twelve years in accordance with the ancient Chinese lunar calendar. In addition, the most popular one-ounce version in the series has a limited annual mintage of only 30,000 pieces, giving the coin a considerable collector’s premium in the secondary market.

The Year of the Snake gold coin contains 99.99% pure gold and is produced with a special minting technique that ensures the coin is in proof-like condition, meaning it has exceptionally shiny and mat surfaces coupled with the richest of detail. This bullion coin is truly a piece of breathtaking gold art suitable for collectors with an eye for beauty and those who wish to give their loved ones something really memorable and special.

History

Australian Lunar gold coin – Year of the Snake

The Chinese lunar calendar is today used by many for Taoist cosmology. It is believed that, depending on the year of the zodiac when a person is born, a special relationship exists between the person’s personality and the animal that constitutes part of the Chinese zodiac. The animals in the zodiac are supposed to be of symbolic nature, where each animal is a representation of a specific group of characteristics and traits that can be found in every human being. There are twelve animals in the Chinese zodiac, each of them being celebrated once every twelve years. The year of the snake was last celebrated in 2013.

Those born in the year of the snake are considered to be diplomatic, cautious, and smart, and especially calculating during sessions of negotiations, either in private circumstances or in situations connected to work. They are thought to have a philosophical and intuitive mind that most often favour feelings and instincts over logic. This intuitiveness coupled with their caution and smartness comes in handy in most business ventures. People born in the year of the snake tend to be good with money and are able to get the best out of every situation, partially attributed to their charming and smooth way of handling things. They are highly seductive and hard to resist, which leads many to fall hopelessly in love with them. Paradoxically, their ability to seduce can be a reflection of their own insecurity, leading them to bite if angered! Those born in the year of the snake often seek the acceptance and approval of the people they care about, and if this security is granted, they will then definitely respond with generosity, romance and love.

It can therefore be seen that the Australian Gold Lunar Year of the Snake coin is an ideal gift for whoever you love or respect, since giving a Gold Lunar coin means that you are showing affection by immortalising the person’s year of birth and particular virtues in pure and precious golden artwork.

 

Australian Lunar Year of the Snake coins – as rare as gold

The Perth Mint introduced the Lunar Year of the Snake gold coins for the first time in 2001 and subsequently issued the coins again in 2013. The next issue of the Year of the Snake will only become available in 2025, when the snake, according to the Chinese lunar calendar, will once again try to seduce. In 2001 the gold coin was offered in 1kg, 10 oz, 2 oz, 1 oz, ¼ oz, 1/10 oz and 1/20 oz weights, while the 2009 issue added one new weight: 10 kg. The one-ounce gold pieces were sold out in both years, reaching the maximum mintage limit of 30,000 gold coins in each respective year. If the mintage of all Year of the Snake gold coins is included, then the total figure rises to 187,138 gold pieces. This is an extremely low figure compared with the mintage of other well-known investment bullion coins. For example, the Australian Kangaroo one-ounce gold coin reaches the corresponding cumulative mintage figure of the Year of the Snake Gold Series every 9 months. Australian Lunar Year of the Snake gold bullion coins are thus well suited for collectors since they are naturally as rare as gold.

Obverse

The obverse portrays the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The reason for picturing Her Majesty the Queen stems from Australia’s membership of the United Kingdom’s Commonwealth of Nations. By being a member of the Commonwealth, Australia has Queen Elizabeth II as its reigning constitutional monarch. Above the Queen’s effigy is the text “ELIZABETH II” and “AUSTRALIA”. Inscribed below the effigy is the nominal face value of 100 Australian dollars, the year of mintage, weight and purity of the coin, and the designer’s initials “IRB” – Ian Rank-Broadley.

Reverse

The reverse displays an embellished snake. Inscribed under the snake is the text “Year of the Snake”, to the left is the Chinese character for “snake”, and the letter “P” which stands for Perth Mint.

Om du planerar på att göra en beställning på både silver och guld, så kommer fraktkostnaden bli den dyrare av de två. Som exempel, om du köper 100 gram guld, vilket har en avgift på 299 SEK samt 6000 gram silver, vilket har en avgift på 399 SEK, så kommer fraktkostnaden för din beställning vara 399 SEK. I beställningar där du enbart köper silver, kommer 25% av fraktkostnaden att debiteras som moms och detta kommer även vara tydligt skrivet på ditt kvitto. Transaktioner där det endast handlar om guld, har ingen moms och därmed behövs inte frakten bli skattad på. Om du gör en order med både silver och guld, så kommer moms behöva betalas, men enbart på silvret och silvrets moms.
