The year 2013 is ruled by the Snake. However, people born in January or February should consult the Chinese lunar calendar. New Year does not automatically fall on January 1st. This celebration is better known as the Spring Festival and coincides with the first day of spring - a date that shifts from year to year depending upon the lunar cycle and solar year. Mintage is limited to 18,888 coins worldwide. HST/GST exempt.

The Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Aries Cheung, your coin captures the true essence of the Snake’s personality: graceful and soft-spoken.

Year of the Snake:

People born during the Year of the Snake have a hypnotic beauty and nevergive themselves totally away. The mysterious Snake is a strategic planner that has everyone guessing its next move. It will keep plotting until it gets what it wants. And when it does, it is not likely to let go. The Snake is a strong individual and is usually destined for great success. Does this sound like someone you know?

The Year of the Snake also ruled 1905, 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989 and 2001.
