I wonder how many other decks use the Universal Egg image for the Ace of Coins?

The snake Ophion, father, and guardian of the Universal egg, appears on the Crowley Universe card, dancing with Eurynome; and the Thoth Two of Disks shows the Snake as Ouroboros, as does MP's two of coins. The image of the egg with a snake wrapped around it (Orphic Egg) appears also on the Thoth Lovers, and the Hermit Cards, while Crowley's Hanged man has a snake coiled round his foot even as he hangs above a snake.
