Snakes have a strong intuition and are often good at reading people and situations. This can make them excellent judges of character. The snake is associated with grace and elegance. People born in this year often have a refined and sophisticated demeanor.


On the obverse of the 2001 Lunar Snake 1 oz Silver Coin, you’ll find a profile of Queen Elizabeth II. This elegant portrayal, created by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998, features the Queen wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara.


The reverse side of the 2001 Australian Lunar Snake Silver Coins features an image of a snake with its eggs. Upon closer examination, you’ll notice a small snake hatching from one of those eggs.


The Year of the Snake is one of the 12 animal signs of the Chinese zodiac, which is based on the Chinese lunar calendar. Each year is associated with a specific animal sign, and the Year of the Snake comes around in a 12-year cycle. People born in the Year of the Snake are believed to share certain personality traits and characteristics with the snake, which is a symbol of wisdom, intelligence, and grace in Chinese culture.


These 2001 Australian Lunar Snake 1 oz Silver Coins are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. They come in protective plastic flips and had an original mintage of only 71,301 coins. While Lunar Series I gold coins made their debut in 1996, the silver coins were introduced in 1999 with the Year of the Rabbit, making the Year of the Snake release the third in the silver series.
