The 2023 $5 Siren 2oz Silver Proof Coin, our latest nautical masterpiece, celebrates the mythical sea siren - a creature of deadly beauty. The Siren originates in ancient Greek mythology - a wicked temptress who takes the form of a half-woman, half-bird. The Roman poet Ovid wrote that the Sirens were once the human companions of Persephone, the daughter of the goddess Demeter. When Persephone was stolen by Hades, the God of the underworld, Demeter turned the Sirens into birds as punishment. The legend of the Siren, as the creatures who lured sailors to their deaths with the irresistible sweetness of their song, was further disseminated through the works of Homer, when the hero Odysseus faced them in his long journey back to Ithaca. In modern times, the Siren is often portrayed as a stunning, but lethal, mermaid – the quintessential temptress capable of luring hardened sailors to their death with her hypnotic song. It is this desirable denizen of the deep that has been brilliantly depicted on the reverse of this spectacularly struck Niue legal tender coin.

We can be proud of the Czech glass - our craftsmen became famous throughout the world and it still has the sound of a prestigious product with an exceptional quality of. Therefore it is entitled to the second issue of the series of silver coins representing the historical milestones in glass manufacture.

The first written mention of glass production in Bohemia dates back to the 1162. The most glorious period of Czech glassmaking, however, occurred in the 17th and 18th centuries, when the Baroque craftsmen made the first Czech crystal. Their extraordinary discovery overshadowed, until then, the unequaled Venetian glass (to which was dedicated the first issue of this series) and have gained an unrivaled position in the European markets. Although their secrets were eventually revealed, the Czech glass conquered the world. The Czech crystal chandeliers hung in the courts of rulers such as Louis XV., Maria Theresa or Elizabeth I Petrovna. Jablonec nad Nisou in North Bohemia played an important role in glass expansion, when at the end of the 19th century they produced 65% of the world’s production of glass jewellery. The field employed over 30,000 workers. The 20th century also began magnificently for the region, when for the year 1911, the Jablonec entrepreneurs handed over taxes to the Habsburg monarchy of the same amount as all the Crown land of Dalmatia put together. At the end of the 20th century, the glass Jablonec nad Nisou also became the city of coinage - it is now the seat of the Czech Mint.

The coin, prepared by the German company Numiscom in cooperation with the Czech Mint and the Jizera company Glass Pesničák, consists of two parts. The first takes the form of a ring minted from two ounces of pure silver. The reverse side of the ring bears the inscription BOHEMIA GLASS and the decorative motif performed in the style of Cubism of Prague. The obverse of the ring is dedicated to the attributes of the issuer of the coin - the emblem of the Republic of Congo, the year of issue 2016 and the nominal value of 1000 FRANCS CFA. The center of the coin then consists of glass of red color with a motive, which is a typical example of the skill of North Bohemian glass makers.

Thanks to authentic workmanship, no two coins are the same. A part of each coin are a refined frame and a booklet in English, which tells the story of this unique issue.
