It was with the young collectors in mind that the Mint of Poland have designed an attractive coin, Year of the Snake, a piece making up the “Chinese Calendar” series. The coin has been struck using the highest quality mirror stamp, on a sterling silver planchet (Ag 925). The piece is legal tender in New Zealand.

A fairy-tale design and a fun packaging make it a great gift for children!

Collect all coins of the series – each year the Mint of Poland issues a coin showing one of the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac: Pig, Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake,  Horse, Goat, Dog, Monkey, and Rooster.

The 12-year cycle repeats in the Chinese Calendar five times and each animal is represented again under a different element: water, earth, wood, fire, or metal. It is believed that any animal belonging to any given year and the associated element influence both the social, political and economic developments, as well as the nature and abilities of people born in that year.

According to the Chinese Calendar the Year of the Snake begins on 10 February 2013 and ends on 30 January of the following year.

People born in the Year of the Snake are usually considered very sensible. Thanks to their ambition and persistency in professional undertakings they can be highly successful. They are good strategists and patient negotiators. Friends and relatives can also rely on their Snakes.

Snakes are best associated with people born in the Year of the Ox and the Year of Rabbit.
