Sign of Zodiac

The silver coin of the Czech Mint from the gift series with the motifs of the 12 zodiac signs will become not only beautiful, but also a valuable talisman for anyone born under the sign of Capricorn.

The constellation of
Capricorn takes the form of a mythical creature with a goat's head and a fish's tail. According to ancient legend, this is the god of forests, fields, herds and shepherds, called Pan by the ancient Greeks and Faun by the Romans. He was immortalised in the sky by Zeus in thanks for his help in fighting the terrible monster Typhon, who wanted to destroy all the Olympians. Those born under the sign of Capricorn tend to be calm, patient and persistent. Their consistency goes hand in hand with ambition. Although their ambitions are not small, they have no problem achieving their goals thanks to iron discipline.

The unusual
oval-shaped coin bears a coloured image of Capricorn on the reverse side. No photographs or computer graphics were used as a template for the colouring - the author of the coin, Asamat Baltaev, DiS., created an original watercolour painting. The relief in the background behind Capricorn presents a disc with a dozen zodiac signs. The composition of the reverse side is supplemented with the Latin inscription CAPRICORN and the corresponding astrological symbol. As the coins of the Czech Mint are issued with the foreign licence of the island of Niue, the obverse side bears its national emblem, the nominal value of ONE DOLLAR (NZD) and the year of issue 2021, all surrounded by twelve astrological signs.

The coin is stored in an
elegant box.
