Are there similar varieties for the 2000 Dragon rectangle?

This 2001 rectangular silver 5oz snake is hard to find in a 69.  Only the 2011 rabbit is more difficult (at this time).

Thx Mark

I knew the 2011 rabbit is hard to find. Btw my feeling is, that this coin was hoarded directly from the mint?!

2001 snake was always available, supply changed just recently?

Remember to watch for filed rims with the early years of this series.  Very frequent with the dragons and somewhat frequent with the snakes.  I do not remember for subsequent years.  I always guessed mint employees filed the high rims before packaging.  Still, this is speculation and I do not know this to be true or know anyone to ask.
