Release Note - Please note that this Snake Silver Dollar with Color in this set is NOT the same coin as the Snake Proof Silver Dollar with Color. This is a different coin: it features a reverse proof finish, and the coloration of the snake is different.

The four coins of the 2013 Year of the Snake Silver Type SetFour Different Coin Types
Each coin presents a different style of finish, for a collection of beautiful and bountiful variety. 

• Specimen Bullion Finish - The mirrored design is highlighted on frosted, matte fields (or background). We would refer to this as a "Reverse Proof" or "Reverse Proof-Like" finish.
• Proof Finish - The fields are deeply mirrored, with the design accented in varying degrees of frosty white cameo relief.
• Gilded Finish - The Gilded coin features a reverse proof finish like the Specimen Bullion coin, but the main elements of the design are highlighted in luxurious, 24-karat gold plating.
• Color Finish - Features a reverse proof frosted background, with the main animal completely rendered in gorgeous full color.

The Year of the Snake - Intelligent and Clever!
A deadly and dangerous, highly poisonous and venomous Eastern Brown Snake of Australia, ready to strike!Centuries ago, the Chinese invented a calendar based on the lunar (rather than the solar) cycle. There are twelve animals in the Chinese lunar zodiac, each corresponding in sequence to a year rather than a month.

In 2013 we celebrate the Year of the Snake. According to tradition, people born during a Year of the Snake (1905, 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, and 2013) are said to exhibit that animal’s attributes. Snake people often enjoy new ideas, innovative thoughts and progress, but some will reject advice from anyone but to themselves, although, most snake people are loyal friends and make great company.

The Snake is strongly associated with deep mysticism, valuable wisdom, and knowledge. Most snake people are enigmatic, deep thinking, and maybe the wisest of all Chinese Horoscope signs. Most snake people enjoy learning, reading, and eating good food. They can also be concerned about their outer appearance. Snakes' best attribute is their excellent ability to communicate with others and successfully engage in interesting conversations. For the Chinese people, the snake symbolizes intelligence, happiness and auspiciousness. In certain parts of China people call the snake the “dragon in heaven” or “celestial being”. At Dangfu in East China’s Anhui Province, people call the snake the “dragon at home”.

This is the sixth annual release in the Lunar Zodiac Series II from Australia!

Obverse
A full color snake, its forked tongue protruding, hangs from a tree branch.  The legend YEAR OF THE SNAKE defines the theme. The Chinese character for "Snake" is to the right, while the Perth Mint's "P" mint mark is judiciously placed to the right, near the 3:00 position along the rim.
