The Sun enters the zodiac sign of Virgo in the last third of August every year. This will happen shortly after the noon of 23 August in 2015. Not just for that moment, Czech Mint has prepared the issue of a silver-plated medal as part of its Old-Town Astronomical Clock series dedicated to August and the sign of Virgo. Make your loved ones happy with an original and beautiful gift!
If you have been so lucky to have a person born in the sign of Virgo as your partner, you can rest assured that you have someone who has both feet firmly on the ground and will always be by your side, calm and wise. Virgos are extremely diligent and precise, and sometimes they become perfectionists. They never hesitate to offer help in need because their primary attributes include respect and the need for bringing harmony into the world. However, they will lose their kind side if you prove to be lazy, unreliable or prodigal. Then they can say their, “NO” very firmly. When it comes to money, they are very prudent in investing and they prefer good quality and long-lasting items.
The silver-plated Virgo medal is the right gift for a person born under this zodiac sign. The sculptress Daniela Kartáková drew inspiration for both side motifs from the astronomy plate of the Old Town Astronomical Clock painted by the renowned Czech painter, Josef Mánes. He depicted August as crop threshers by the Kunětická Mountain and added a magical rendition of the Virgo sign. The two images with the writings AUGUST and VIRGO adorn the obverse side. For the reverse side, which is common to the entire series, Daniela Kartáková created a beautiful composition of Josef Mánes’s portrait with a palette in front of the Clock’s calendar plate. The inscriptions along the perimeter read JOSEF MÁNES and PRAGUE ASTRONOMICAL CLOCK. The silver-plated Virgo medal is not just a nice gift. It is also a small work of art inspiring you to refresh your numismatic collections with an interesting addition.
