Universal Goddess

The Czech Mint dedicated the third ancient goddess, the Slavic Vesna, to the silver coin.

In many pagan pantheons there are the so-called
triple goddesses that symbolize the cycle of nature and all life. The ancient Slavs also worshiped three women - the Virgin Vesna, the mother Živa and the old woman Morana. These archetypes represent birth, maturation and withering, spring, summer and winter. According to the ancient Slavs, the personification of spring took the form of a lovely Vesna - unfettered girl, cheerful and full of life, ethereal, with tousled hair, in a light dress. This virgin takes over the reign of her eldest sister - the freezing and barren Death Morana. It banishes winter, brings green vegetation, therefore, it owns all the spring flowers. Her arrival is announced by the first spring storm, which occurs when the supreme god Perun looks in her eyes and drops his thunder ax in amazement. The Slavs worshiped Vesna from the spring equinox to the summer solstice, not only through mysterious rituals in birch groves or wells, but also by simple dancing or flower wreaths.

The reverse side of the coin, processed by the medal maker
MgA. Petra Čánská, presents a charming Vesna with unrestrained hair blowing in the wind. The relief is surrounded by spring flowers - from snowdrops to dandelions - and birch branches. Vesna´s curls and birch leaves can also be found on the obverse side of the coin. There they are supplemented with motifs of Greek, Nordic, Indian and Egyptian origin - the obverse side is common to the whole cycle of divine coins. Since the coins of the Czech Mint are licensed by a foreign issuer, the island of Niue, the obverse side also bears its necessary elements - a nominal value of 10 DOLLARS (NZD), the name and portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. and the year of issue 2021.

Universal goddesses of the world are immortalized on large coins - each weighing
five troy ounces.
