The first release in an interesting, thought provoking new series, this high relief silver coin depicts the Greek Goddess, Athena.

A twelve issue set, the Twelve Olympians of the Zodiac considers which of the traditional star signs coincide with the Gods of Olympus of Ancient Greece. For Athena, the decision is clear - Aries!

Athena's connection with Aries is fairly straight forward. Aries is associated with the head, and anyone even remotely aware of classical mythology knows that Athena sprung fully-formed from Zeus head, and is associated with intellect and all that it entails. Aries in particular is associated with traits like leadership, strategy and courage, all traits intrinsic to Athena in her myths. Aries in particular is associated with the fire of the mind, raw creativity and thought, as well as the rising of the dawn, being the start of the Zodiac and exalted in the Sun, all traits visceral to the nature of Athena's story, being the Nous of Zeus. Notably, the bird most associated with Aries is the owl, the bird of Athena.

According to some astrologists, Aries is associated with creativity and thought, as well as the rising of the dawn, being the start of the Zodiac. All of these traits can be ascribed to Athena, as the offspring of Zeus. Intriguingly, the bird most associated with Aries is the owl... the bird widely used to depict Athena.

The silver coin of the Czech Mint from the gift series with the motifs of the 12 zodiac signs will become not only beautiful, but also a valuable talisman for anyone born under the sign of Capricorn.

The constellation of Capricorn takes the form of a mythical creature with a goat's head and a fish's tail. According to ancient legend, this is the god of forests, fields, herds and shepherds, called Pan by the ancient Greeks and Faun by the Romans. He was immortalised in the sky by Zeus in thanks for his help in fighting the terrible monster Typhon, who wanted to destroy all the Olympians. Those born under the sign of Capricorn tend to be calm, patient and persistent. Their consistency goes hand in hand with ambition. Although their ambitions are not small, they have no problem achieving their goals thanks to iron discipline.

The unusual oval-shaped coin bears a coloured image of Capricorn on the reverse side. No photographs or computer graphics were used as a template for the colouring - the author of the coin, Asamat Baltaev, DiS., created an original watercolour painting. The relief in the background behind Capricorn presents a disc with a dozen zodiac signs. The composition of the reverse side is supplemented with the Latin inscription CAPRICORN 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 surrounded by twelve astrological signs.

The coin is stored in an elegant box.
