FILIGREE SNAKE Silver Coin 1$ Fiji 2013



Theme Background:
Fiji Filigree Snake collector coin is one of Mint of Finland’s Year of the Snake collector coins. The snake is a convenient theme for coins, because in Chinese horoscope the wise snakes are good with money. In Japan, snake is a symbol of wealth, and therefore some people put the skin of a snake into their wallet because they believe it brings good luck. In the centre of the coin, ultra-fine silver thread forms a snake symbolizing intelligence, happiness and auspiciousness for the Chinese people. The filigree is created through a goldsmith’s technique of beating thin silver threads into shapes. The silver thread is little thicker than a human hair so creating the filigree effect requires individual working and is extremely demanding.
