Mythical Creatures

The Czech Mint presents harpy on the fourth silver coin from the collector's series Mythical Creatures.

Half female and half bird of prey
– this is the harpy, which represents the destructive power of nature. It personifies the storm, and its original role was to take the souls of the deceased to the underworld and punish criminals according to the command of the gods. Hence its name - the Greek "harpazein" means to kidnap or seize. Its description has changed over the years. Beautiful women with wings that were like seductive sirens gradually became monstrous and omnivorous scavengers with the faces of old women, who harmed all good people, tormented brave heroes and devoured the wounded soldiers they abducted from battles. No wonder this version of the harpy gave its name to all evil and cruel women.

On the reverse of the coin made
by Asamat Baltaev, DiS., there is a harpy, kind of beautiful, yet wild and dangerous. Its whole body is covered with feathers, only human part is a face. Its depiction is accompanied by an English incsription HARPY. It is not without interest that the coin does not have a classic coin frame, however, the relief is surrounded by decorative ornaments that permeate the entire collecting cycle. As the coins of the Czech Mint are published with the foreign license of the island of Niue, their obverse side bears the name and portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, the nominal value of 2 DOLLARS (NZD) and the year of issue 2020.

Don't forget that in the offer of the Czech Mint you will also find a spectacular
collector's album, where you can store a complete twelve-part collection of mythical creatures.
