One thought on “2013-Year-of-the-Snake-One-Ounce-proof-prestige-Lunar-Series-Royal-Australian-Mint-packaging

  1. I just picked up one of these 1oz/$1.00 R.A.M. Lunar Snakes today (24/5/13).
    I already had the
    version (11.6g-ish I think?) & I have to admit, this is a nicer coin in so many ways:
    -Beautifully presented in a lovely Silver “gilded” royal blue & black outer box, padded inner case with black velvet-like lining.
    -Striking design (especially when compared to the Standard, red cased Proof).
    -Attractive & informative (auspicious) red C.O.A. which has the same text in both English & Chinese. A wise move on behalf of the R.A.M. considering their target market.
    I like the fact that for only $30 odd dolars more, you get a full Troy Ounce of .999 Fine Silver as opposed to the 11g odd in the standard proof and the coin still has a limited mintage of only 10,000!
    In my opinion there’s nothing “Proof-Like” about this coin, it’s quality is equal to or greater than that of its red cased counterpart.
