In ancient Chinese mythology, the 12 creatures in the Zodiac gained their position in the 12-year cycle as a result of the Great Race. After the Jade Emperor called a meeting of the animal kingdom, creatures from all corners raced to the meeting. The snake arrived sixth, earning it the sixth spot in the Zodiac’s cycle.
On the reverse face of the 100 Gram Silver PAMP Suisse Snake Bar is the image of a snake with its body wrapped around a bamboo pole. The only engraving accompanying the snake on this side of the bar is the Chinese symbol for snake.
The obverse side of the features the back of the image of the reverse. The same bamboo pole is visible, with the same snake wrapped around the pole. In between the sections of the snake’s body as it runs down the pole are the engravings of the refinery and the bar’s identifying features.
