The Year of the Snake came and went in 2013 as the sixth year in the 12-year cycle of the Zodiac. The Chinese Lunar Calendar assigns an animal and its characteristics to every 12th year, with those born during those years believed to share the characteristics and traits of the representative animal. Today, 2013 1/4 oz Gold Australian Lunar Snakes are available to you online at Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Available to ship to you inside of an individual plastic capsule!
  • Sixth release in the Lunar Series II collection!
  • Mintage limited to 16,159 coins only!
  • Consists of One-Quarter Troy ounce of .9999 fine gold in BU condition.
  • The face value of $25 (AUD) is fully backed by the Australian government.

The Year of the Snake falls in the middle of the 12-year cycle of the Zodiac. The arrival of the Year of the Snake is associated with the Earthly Branch symbol. The Perth Mint issued unlimited mintages for seven of the nine weights in the 2013 Gold Australian Lunar Snake issue. The only coins with mintage caps were the 1 oz coin at 30,000 and the 10 Kilogram coin at 100. While the 1 oz coin sold out its allotment, the 10 Kilogram gold coin sold only 11 coins.

All 2013 1/4 oz Gold Australian Lunar Snakes in this product listing ship in an individual plastic capsule and come in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The Perth Mint used an unlimited mintage for the 1/4 oz Gold Australian Lunar Snake, indicating that it would produce the coins through the end of 2013 and then stop production. As long as demand persisted, the coins were struck. In the end, 16,159 coins in the 1/4 oz Gold Lunar Snakes were produced. This was the third-highest behind the 30,000-coin sellout of 1 oz gold coins and the 23,700 1/10 oz gold coins sold.

Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse of the 2013 1/4 oz Gold Australian Lunar Snakes. Her Majesty’s right-profile bust as featured here was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley for the Royal Mint of England. It was used on Australian denominations from 1999 to 2018.

A snake is shown slithering through the grass near stalks of bamboo on the reverse of 2013 1/4 oz Gold Australian Lunar Snakes. The stalks of bamboo creep in on the right of the design field as a small patch of grass is under the snake’s body in the lower left. Inscriptions include the Chinese symbol for a snake and the “P” mintmark of the Perth Mint.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
