On the reverse of the 2001 Australian Lunar Snake Gold Coin, a captivating snake is depicted slithering around a branch. Inscriptions are also present in the overall design. Inscriptions read 2001 and 1/10 OZ 9999 GOLD.


The snake ranks as the 6th animal in the zodiac. Legend has it that these animals were chosen by the Jade Emperor to determine the order of the Chinese zodiac. The Jade Emperor created a race across a rapid river, with the first 12 being the 12 represented in the zodiac. Those born during the Year of the Snake are often described as intelligent, determined, and enigmatic.
