According to Jewish tradition, God created the first woman Lilith just as Adam from dust. Lilith was therefore not willing to submit to her husband. This is symbolized that she refused to lie under Adam in lovemaking. Adam was so enraged, that Lilith left the paradise. God created Adam a second wife, Eva, this time from the man's rib. Lilith was said to be the snake that Eve gave the fruit, with whom she seduced Adam.
Lilith is sensual and confident unlike to the subordinate Eve. Lilith and Eve represent the two types of women who are in psychology and literature between Heaven and Hell.

According to the Chinese Zodiac, the Year of 2013 is the Year of the Snake, which begins on February 10, 2013 and ends on January 30, 2014. The Snake is the sixth sign of the Chinese Zodiac, which consists of 12 Animal Signs. It is the enigmatic, intuitive, introspective, refined and collected of the Animals Signs. Ancient Chinese wisdom says a Snake in the house is a good omen because it means that your family will not starve. People born in the Year of the Snake are keen and cunning, quite intelligent and wise. They are great mediators and good at doing business. Therefore, you should have good luck if you were born in the Year of the Snake.

The reverse side of the coin features the painting Lilith (1892) by John Collier in 2D True-color-Holography. Holography is a technique that allows the light scattered from an object to be recorded and later reconstructed so that when an imaging system (a camera or an eye) is placed in the reconstructed beam, an image of the object will be seen even when the object is no longer present. The image changes as the position and orientation of the viewing system changes in exactly the same way as if the object were still present, thus making the image appear three- dimensional. The coin obverse depicts the Republic of Korea State Coat of Arms, the face value and the weight.
