Sign of Zodiac

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

The shape of the constellation of
Leo is reminiscent of the king of animals - and not just any king. The lion shines in the sky as a reminder of the valiant Heracles and the first of his legendary twelve quests to hunt down the dangerous and invincible beast. In addition to the constellations, the Lions in human form are ruled by another celestial body - the Sun. Just as the brightest star is the center of our solar system, also Lions tend to be the center of attention. Like their animal namesakes, they are dominant creatures who want to win in all circumstances. They are sociable and charismatic, but can easily succumb to pride and arrogance.

The unusual
oval-shaped coin bears a coloured depiction of a Lion on the reverse side. No photographs or computer graphics were used as the basis for the colouring - the author of the coin, Asamat Baltaev, DiS., created an original watercolour painting. The relief in the background behind the Lion presents a disc with a dozen zodiac signs. The composition of the reverse side is supplemented with the Latin inscription LEO 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 this is surrounded by twelve astrological signs.

The coin is stored in an
elegant box.
