Each coin is housed in special ANDA presentation packaging, making it an unforgettable memento from the show.

DESIGN

The reverse of the success coin depicts a representation of the staff or caduceus of the god Mercury, featuring two snakes and wings, adjacent to the Roman gods Mercury and Fortuna, both symbolising success and abundance. The inscriptions SUCCESS and 2013 YEAR OF THE SNAKE also appear in the design with The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2013 year-date are shown on the coin’s obverse.

PRESENTATION

Accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, the coin is housed in a prestigious acrylic display case and wonderfully illustrated box-shipper featuring the ANDA logo alongside the dates of the Perth show.
