Depicting the legendary story of the serpent in the Garden of Eden, the one that tempted Eve to take a bite of the apple, the forbidden fruit, we think this one is beautiful. The basic shape is heptagonal, representing the seven sins of man, but the coils of the snake breach its boundaries in several places, giving this a considerably more complex look.

Details abound. The apple has a bite taken out of it, and even has a bit of stalk protruding from its top. The snake’s forked tongue is extended, and its body coils through the flora in the background. Even that flora is well chosen, being lilies, which represent innocence and purity, in direct contrast to the evil of the serpent.

It’s an awesome piece, the dark antique-finish suiting it well, and the fact this can carry a design that complex and still be stackable, is a testament to the skill involved in its creation. Immediately climbing near the top of our favorites in this range, this is certainly one to seek out, in my view. Again, it’s two ounces of silver, and again, there’s no mintage cap. Outstanding.
