Lunar Series I coins are highly sought after for their low mintages and strikingly detailed designs – a hallmark of this series. The Snake is the third release of this series and represents a mix of positive and negative connotations in Chinese culture. People born under the influence of the snake are said to be financially secure, wise, and are good at communicating.
This 40.6mm diameter 2000 Year of the Snake coin is struck from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver. The exquisitely crafted piece has a reported mintage of 71,301.
The reverse of this coin depicts a female snake vigilantly guarding her nest of eggs.
