Is your Lunar-Zodiac sign the Snake?
According to legend, Buddha held a race to cross a great river, and the order of the twelve animals in the Lunar Zodiac cycle was based upon their order in finishing the race. In this story, the Snake compensated for not being the best swimmer by hitching a hidden ride on the horse's hoof, and when the horse was just about to cross the finish line, the snake jumped out, scaring the horse, and thus edging it out for sixth place.
Whether you, a family member, loved one, or friend was born in the Year of the Snake, the beautiful low mintage coins issued by China would make a unique gift or addition to a numismatic/precious metal investment portfolio. Many dealers only have these coins raw, but we have exquisite examples certified by the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) in premium proof grades at very competitive prices.
