The second issue of the Big Five Asia series shows a King Cobra.
The exceptional high relief of 13.25 (!) mm on the coin makes the Cobra, which is poised about to strike, stand out and appear three-dimensional, while its unblinking stare and wide-open jaws impress the observer.
This coin is a further demonstration of Atelier P. de Greef’s standing as one of the pre-eminent mints in Europe.and coin creator Beni Debacker. The height of the relief is yet again utterly impressive.
