Perth Mint Lunar Series Gold Snakes Sell Out
The year 2001 one-ounce Gold Snakes, the 6th coin in The Perth Mint Lunar Series, ended up being the 3rd coin in the Series to reach the 30,000-coin production cap that the Mint set for the one-ounce Lunar Series gold coins. The year 2000 one-ounce Gold Dragon was the very first coin to strike the production cap, followed by the year 2002 one-ounce Gold Horse.

The Perth Mint Lunar Series is based upon the Chinese 12 year Lunar Calendar, which dates back to 2600 BC. Each year is called after an animal, and, in turn, each animal sign is governed by five aspects: wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. Once every sixty years, each aspect appears with each animal only. Coin collectors worldwide are drawn to these coins because of the originality of the Lunar Series.

The Perth Mint launched the Lunar Series in 1996 in the year of the Rat. Although aimed at the coin collector market, Lunar Series coins are cost bullion coin prices.

Perth Mint Lunar Series coins offer both worth and appeal. They are struck with near evidence quality and are amongst the most lovely bullion coins being minted.

Although Lunar Series coins come in numerous sizes, the one-ounce coins bring the greatest appeal. For gold bullion investors, the one-ounce gold coins are simple to store and protect. And, as a rule, one-ounce coins are more demanded by coin collectors than are fractional-ounce gold coins.

By contrast, the U.S. Mint's one-ounce Gold Eagles, which are the world's best-selling gold bullion coins, have unrestricted production. Gold Eagles are not most likely ever to become collector coins, whereas the sold-out one-ounce Dragons, Gold Horses, and Gold Snakes already have accomplished collector status.
