About the Snake:
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.

A clear foil layer on the background elements of the stamp gives the illusion of shimmering water. The characters on the left side announce the Year of the Snake and welcome the coming return of spring.

Purchased two of these coins as gifts. Unlike some of the other more expensive " Year of the Snake" coins, I am impressed with the uniqueness and cleverness of this design. Beautiful!

When I received this coin in the mail I was very impressed and as I was born in the year of the snake it means more to me.
I am so glad I ordered it…
Very well done.
