The silver coin of the Czech Mint from the gift series with motifs of 12 signs of the zodiac will become not only a beautiful, but also a valuable talisman for everyone who was born in the sign of Pisces.

Do you know why there are two fishes in the celestial constellation? This can be answered by ancient Greek myths about the monster Tyfon, from whom even the ancient gods themselves had to hide. Everyone turned into an animal out of fear, and the goddess of love Aphrodite and her son Eros chose a fish appearance. In order not to lose each other in a sharp stream of water, they tied their tails with a gibbon… The lives of Pisces in human form are ruled by emotions. They absorb the moods of their surroundings - positive and negative - and then behave according to them. Sensitivity and extraordinary sense of empathy make them great helpers who are always willing to lend a helping hand. However, their lack of self-confidence often leads to situations where they allow themselves to be abused. In addition to the constellation, the Pisces is also ruled by the planet Neptune. In astrology, it often points to individuals who love impersonally - such as humanity as a whole - which can sometimes lead to self-sacrifice, which the Pisces often commits.

The non-traditional oval-shaped coin bears a colored image of the Fish on the reverse side. Photographs or computer graphics were not used as a template for coloring - the author of the coin, Asamat Baltaev, DiS., created an original watercolor painting. The relief in the background of Pisces presents a disk with a dozen zodiac signs. The composition of the reverse side is then supplemented with the Latin inscription PISCES and the corresponding astrological symbol. Since the coins of the Czech Mint are licensed by a foreign issuer, 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.

Lady Bugs have been symbols of luck for over 1000 years! Legend says that the lady bug first gained its “Lucky” status when it kept landing on a man’s neck that was sentenced to be executed by the French guillotine. The man proclaimed his innocence and the Lady Bug kept landing on his neck to distract the executioner. It was seen as a divine intervention and spared the man’s life and later he was proven innocent.

The Lady Bug’s legend grew as European farmers prayed for help from pesky insects and Lady Bugs arrived shortly after.

The Athenian Owl tetradrachm, renamed after the Greek goddess of wisdom, is arguably the most popular and recognized ancient coin. It represented about a week’s pay for ancient Greek soldiers. It is said that President Teddy Roosevelt carried an Athenian Owl as a lucky piece. The owl was associated with Athena very early on in archaic artworks and often depicted perching on her hand. Because of its strong connection with the goddess, the owl evolved into the Athenians’ own icon and graced a large variety of coins such as the tetradrachm from as early as the 5th century BC.

Since owls were believed to be foreseeing future events they became a representation of wisdom and intelligence. On the other hand, due to their nocturnal existence, these animals were equally linked to the occult and the Otherworld. Their mysterious habits, silent flight and haunting calls have earned them the reputation of superstitious and fearsome beasts in many parts of the world.

This ravishing masterpiece is kept in an antique look and impresses with its astonishing ultra high relief. A fascinating contribution to the history of coins.
