This special 2001 Proof Gold Lunar Year of the Snake Hologram Coin from the Royal Canadian Mint is made from .32 oz of gold. This coin is slabbed and professionally graded by NGC to a “Superb Gem” Proof PF69, only one point from the absolute perfect score.
People born in the Year of the Snake are quick-witted, intellectual and decisive. 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001 and 2013 are Years of the Snake. The Snake’s best friends are the Ox, the Rooster and the Dragon. Relations with the Tiger or the Pig often lead to problems.
