On the obverse of 2013 Gold Australian Lunar Snakes is the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty has been the reigning monarch of England and the Commonwealth since 1952. This is the fourth-generation design created by Ian Rank-Broadley for the Royal Mint of England, but was the fifth to feature on the obverse of Australian coinage. This right-profile bust includes the Queen wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland tiara.
The reverse side of 2013 1 oz Gold Australian Lunar Snakes depicts a small snake as it coils itself up in the midst of grass in a bamboo field. The design includes inscriptions of “P” as the Perth Mint mark, “Year of the Snake,” and the Chinese symbol for a snake.
