This huge silver coin has a diameter of more than 10 cm (4 inches), and weighs one full kilogram - 32.15 ounces of .9999 pure silver. The nominal face value is $250, making this one of the highest face value silver coin ever produced in Canada. With this oversized precious metal canvas, the Royal Canadian Mint has created a beautiful work of art depicting the Chinese Lunar Year of the Snake. The coin is of the highest quality possible, with a double struck frosted cameo finish. While last year's Year of the Dragon coin was limited to 5,888, the 2013 Snake coin is much more limited, with a mintage of just 888 coins worldwide.
The year 2013 is ruled by the Snake. The Year of the Snake also ruled 1905, 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989 and 2001. People born during the Year of the Snake have a hypnotic beauty and never give themselves totally away. The mysterious Snake is a strategic planner that has everyone guessing its next move. It will keep plotting until it gets what it wants. And when it does, it is not likely to let go. The Snake is a strong individual and is usually destined for great success.
The Year of the Snake also ruled: 2001, 1989, 1977, 1965, 1953, 1941, 1929, 1917 and 1905. (Note: People born in January and February should consult a lunar calendar to determine which sign they are born under.)
