2013 is the Year of the Snake in the Chinese Zodiac. Acclaimed as the “small dragon”, the Snake is believed to be a mascot that brings wealth, longevity and happiness. To celebrate this affluent Year of the Snake, the famous Royal Mint has released the “Hong Kong Year of the Snake Gold Proof Medals” in strictly limited edition! Sequels to the first yellow gold lunar medal series of the HKSAR, these issues gain immense popularity! Shining in golden splendour, each of them embodies the intrinsic nobleness of pure gold!
