Canada Post - Thematic Collection #99 - Year of the Snake - Stamp and Coin Set (2001)
2001, the first year of the century, is the Year of the Snake. The snake, a swift, clever and mystical creature, represents power and divinity.
People born during the Year of the Snake are graceful and soft-spoken with a profound sense of responsability. Elegant in speech, dress and manners, those born in this year are suited to become philosophers, theologians, politicians ans financiers.
Canada Post and The Royal Canadian Mint are pleased to join Canada's Asian communities in celebrating the Lunar New Year through initiatives such as this special edition stamp and coin set.
2001 - Thematic collection. Joint Royal Canadian Mint / Canada Post stamp and coin product.
