Incredibly, less than two months since the Perth Mint announced the release of the Year of the Snake coins for 2013, significant sell-outs have already been witnessed for these immensely popular issues.
The one ounce gold and silver bullion Year of the Snake coins, with mintages of 30,000 and 300,000 respectively, have entirely sold out at the Perth Mint. These sell-outs have come even quicker than those of the 2012 lunar issue, celebrating the Year of the Dragon.
As we reported on the day of release, coins celebrating the Chinese lunar calendar are more sought after than ever by collectors worldwide – a popularity driven in large part by low edition limits in combination with attractive designs and the high-esteem with which Perth Mint issues are held in by numismatists.
Featuring the same impressive snake design as the gold bullion coin, but struck to a much higher quality finish, the Perth Mint’s proof 2013 Year of the Snake gold coins also feature significantly smaller edition limits. Coin Portfolio Management has already acquired a number of these desirable issues for our clients that are available now on our brand new website.
