This coin is certified to be 99.99% fine silver with a weight of 15.87 grams and a diameter of 34 millimetres. The reverse image design by Canadian artist Aries Cheung centres on a stylized snake coiling upright, head at the top of the coin's polished field and tail at the bottom. The snake is engraved with a pattern of swirling motifs that recall the curling waves that approach the snake from the reverse image's left side. The snake is flanked, on its right, by the Chinese symbols for snake. The reverse also features the word 'CANADA,' the date '2013,' and the face value of '10 DOLLARS.'
