Perth Mint 2013 Lunar Snake Coin Pictures Leaked

Perth Mint 2013 Lunar Snake Coin Pictures Leaked

Earlier today I put up a post on Silver Lunar about the upcoming release of the 2013 Lunar Snake Coins from Perth Mint (following this post earlier in the year):
Although the official designs have not yet been released, we can get some design cues from the ComLaw submissions as previously posted about earlier this year:
The design for the 2013 Australian Lunar Year of the Snake (10kg, 1kg, 10oz, 5oz, 2oz, 1oz and 1/2oz) silver bullion coins consists of a representation of a snake entwined on a branch, surrounded by a pattern of lines.
The design for the 2013 Australian Lunar Year of the Snake (10kg, 1kg, 10oz, 2oz, 1oz, 1/2oz, 1/4oz, 1/10oz and 1/20oz) gold bullion coins consists of a representation of a snake resting on grass with bamboo at its side, surrounded by a pattern of lines.
Some might remember that the design for the Perth Mint 2012 Lunar Dragon was in fact leaked a couple of months before the release date and official unveiling, so keep your eyes peeled.

Although the description for the 2013 Silver Lunar Snake reads like it could be a repeat of the 2001 Gold Lunar Snake (snake entwined on a branch, see picture below), I have it on good authority that they've gone with a completely new design for the silver coin this year.
After I posted the above at Silver Lunar someone added a comment below linking to images of the Perth Mint 2013 Lunar Snake Coin designs (both Silver and Gold variants), so thought that was worth a cross post here (for those interested in seeing the designs (they are proof type by the look, but images should remain the same for the bullion coins):

[At request of Perth Mint the images were removed until official release, now out of embargo they have been reposted]

The bullion coins will be available from release on September 3rd, 2012, with other numismatic coin variants likely to follow soon after.

As I've mentioned here in the past, most blog posts on Lunar Series coins will now be posted on another site which I launched around 6 months ago (www.silverlunar.com). Silver Lunar is dedicated specifically to information and news about Lunar Series coins (note also that there is a separate mailing list for post notifications). However from time to time there will be something worth a cross post here as well (such as the above)...
