The Serpent of Milan is from the coat of arms of the House of Visconti. Those with a keen eye for detail may recognize this symbol as it is still widely used in Italy. The House of Visconti ruled the city of Milan for nearly 200 years and the Serpent of Milan was associated with the crest of this ruling house. It also remains relevant in the modern era.

The design was accepted by the government in June 1962 as the new coat of arms for the independent state. The shield has a cross above it with waves and a palm tree in the upper third, while the Southern Cross constellation is found in the lower two-thirds of the shield. The background includes concentric circles with olive leaves flanking the shield. The national motto Faavae I Le Atua Samoa is on a ribbon below the shield. This translates as Samoa is founded on God.

It depicts a snake slithering toward a young child and devouring it.
The Serpent of Milan is not just an ancient symbol revived for a coin series. The serpent is still part of the symbolism of the modern city of Milan and is also found in the crest of the Italian automaker Alfa Romeo.
