The silver coin from the Czech Mint´s 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 Cancer.

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.

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.

According to ancient Chinese mythology, the universe was divided into four quadrants marking the winter and summer solstices, and the autumn and spring equinoxes. These heavenly quadrants were known as the ‘Four Celestial Palaces’, with each palace represented by a guardian animal with a corresponding colour, element, and virtue.

The coin’s reverse portrays the guardians of the Four Celestial Palaces.

Black Tortoise: (Season) Winter - (Element) Water.
Symbolic of longevity, wisdom, knowledge, and reproduction; with no males, females were said to mate with snakes.

Blue Dragon: (Season) Spring - (Element) Wood
A symbol of supreme power; benevolent, just, and the bringer of wealth and good fortune.

Red Phoenix: (Season) Summer - (Element) Fire
Symbolic of resurrection and immortality; appeared in times of good fortune and believed to bring happiness to the people.

White Tiger: (Season) Autumn - (Element) Metal
The king of all animals and the lord of the mountains; a fierce protector with the power to exorcise evil spirits and grant a good harvest.

Represented in vibrant colour, the four Chinese mythical creatures surround a yin yang symbol at the centre of the antiqued coin’s reverse.
