It’s no coincidence you’ve slithered upon Provident Metals to strike at these 2001 1 oz silver Year of the Snake coins from the Perth Mint Lunar Series 1. In the Chinese zodiac, the snake symbolizes, among other things, intelligence, and it’s smart to prepare for your future with these coins containing one ounce of .999 fine silver.
A snake coiled with five eggs is the focal point of the obverse. A baby snake is hatching from one egg with another looking ready to hatch. The design is circled with the inscriptions of “2001,” “1 OZ 999 SILVER,” the Chinese sign for snake and scrollwork decorated along the edges.
Many snakes are known to lay eggs in a log or in the ground and leave their babies to hatch. Some snakes, like the python or king cobra, will keep their eggs safe and warm until they hatch before leaving them to survive on their own. Snakes often give birth every one to three years.
People hatched in the years 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001 and 2013 are Year of the Snake babies. Along with intellect, the snake is also a symbol for passion, gracefulness and sympathy, and are friends of the ox, rooster and dragon. Their relationship with the tiger and pig are not as solid.
The obverse bears the right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II wearing her crown. She is surrounded by the inscriptions of “ELIZABETH II,” “1 DOLLAR” and “AUSTRALIA.”
