Ouroboros 2022 2oz Silver Antiqued Coloured Coin



Ouroboros 2022 2oz Silver Antiqued Coloured Coin

Derived from a Greek word meaning ‘tail-devourer’, the ouroboros is an ancient symbol portraying a snake or serpent eating its own tail. Appearing in a variety of ancient cultures and beliefs as a circular or eight shaped symbol, it represented the regenerative cycle of life, enlightenment and renewal.

A horizontal eight-shaped symbol was first used mathematically in the 17th century to denote the concept of the endless and unlimited. A line that never ends, it is commonly known as the infinity symbol. In modern mysticism and popular culture, the ouroboros encapsulates these ancient mythical and mathematical connotations as a celebration of eternity.

The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 2oz of 99.99% pure silver and issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 2,000 of the Ouroboros 2022 2oz Silver Antiqued Coloured Coin.


The infinity-shaped coin portrays a coloured impression of a snake consuming its tail. Also included in the design is The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II appears on the obverse with the coin’s weight, fineness, monetary denomination, and year-date.
