This 2013 $150 gold coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint marks the Chinese lunar year of snake and celebrates the unique heritage and ancient culture of Chinese Canadians. With a mintage of just 1200 pieces, it is also one of the lowest mintage coins issued by the Mint in recent years. The reverse image, design by Canadian artist Aries Cheung, centres on a stylized snake coiling upright, head at the top of the coin's polished field and tail at the bottom. The snake is engraved with a pattern of swirling motifs that recall the curling waves that approach the snake from the reverse image's left side. The snake is flanked, on its right, by the Chinese symbols for snake.

The year 2013 is ruled by the Snake. The Snake personality is graceful and soft-spoken. It has a hypnotic beauty and never gives itself 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 1905, 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989 and 2001. However, people born in January or February should consult the Chinese lunar calendar. New Year does not automatically fall on January 1st. This celebration is better known as the Spring Festival and coincides with the first day of spring-a date that shifts from year to year depending upon the lunar cycle and solar year.
