Description of obverse and reverse Obverse: Coat of Arms of Fiji, above which there is a semicircular inscription «FIJI 2013». At the bottom there is a face value of the coin «10 DOLLARS». Reverse: the design consists of a representation of two snakes entwined on a Gilson-Opal gemstone, surrounded by a line. The Opal is cut off for the Chinese character «Year of the Snake» and filled with embossed artificial black Onyx. A kind of double layer gemstones!
A brief annotation Gilson-Opals can express every color in the visible spectrum. In the Middle Ages, opal was considered a stone that could provide great luck because it was believed to possess all the virtues of each gemstone whose color was represented in the color spectrum of the opal. It was also said to confer the power of invisibility if wrapped in a fresh bay leaf and held in the hand. The idea of the coin is to show the fascinating colorful variety of Opal as symbol for the many characteristics which are united in people born in the Year of the Snake.

Технология оригинальна, но выглядит аляповато, да и чёрный оникс малоприметен.

Не самая плохая, но и не самая лучшая на конкурсе. Хотя надо видеть живьем.
