Demeter‘s connection with Virgo has survived even to modern days: Virgo is frequently depicted as a woman carrying grain, in the likeness of Demeter. While Demeter is technically not a virgin, in the myth she and Poseidon has a doughter - Persephone, similar to how Hera remains a perpetual virgin by bathing on special springs (curiously, like Hera, Demeter too has a role in the protection of marriages). Likewise, unlike Aphrodite, Demeter seems to have a more “chaste” form of fertility, being less of a sexual goddess and more focused on the nurturing aspects of the creation of new life. At any rate, Virgo does not stand for literal virginity as much as a spiritual one, forsaking desires for duty

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.

As the King of the gods, Zeus‘ connection with Leo is appropriate as it is the "king of the Zodiac signs". The connection gains a lot more weight in mythology: Zeus is closely associated with Helios, perhaps even more so than Apollo, as Helios is referred as "the eye of Zeus" and is referred as Zeus in his own Orphic hymn. Aether (the primordial light that illumines the Heavens) is "Zeus' power", and his role as the god of civilization, justice and law is very similar to that of sun gods like Shamash and Ra (Apollo also shares these traits, as he too is a god of justice and law). Zeus is outright referred as the Sun in some particular Greco-roman religious traditions like Pythagorean philosophy, where he is the supramundane Sun of the Olympians.As the Sun symbolizes the center, so is Leo's position in the Zodiac indicative.

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 Aquarius.

Aquarius, Latin for Aquarius, is one of the oldest observed constellations in the zodiac. It is associated with a number of legends, but in all of them it has the form of a man with a bucket, a jug or other vessel. In Egyptian mythology, Aquarius caused the flooding of the Nile, in Greek myths it was Zeus who punished sinful humanity with a stream of water. The celestial ruler of the born in the sign of Aquarius is the planet Uranus, which in astrology is a symbol of change, coups, unrest, but also originality. Aquarius is often given a desire for freedom and the demolition of old order. Therefore, they often become thinkers, discoverers, artists and visionaries who are ahead of their time. Sometimes, however, they also show inadaptability and a tendency to be different at all costs. Surprisingly, the element of aquarius is not water, but air which signifies extraterrestrial thinking.

he coin of a non-traditional oval shape bears a colored image of Aquarius in the form of an ancient man with an amphora 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 behind Aquarius presents a disk with a dozen zodiac signs. The composition of the reverse side is supplemented with a Latin inscription of AQUARIUS and an astrological symbol. Since the coins of the Czech Mint are licensed by a foreign issuer, the island of Niue, their obverse sides bear 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 Taurus.

The constellation Taurus was named after an ancient Greek legend about Princess Europe, whose extraordinary beauty enchanted Zeus. The ruler of the gods then cunningly transformed into a white bull, so that he could kidnap the beauty and have it only for himself. Like mythical princesses, people born under the sign of Taurus have their own charm, refined taste, romance and sensuality. They often cling to the material side of things, and therefore like to be surrounded by beautiful objects. No wonder - their lives are influenced by the planet Venus, named after the Roman goddess of beauty, love, spring and rebirth. Other qualities of the Bulls in human form are permanence and realism, which, however, can grow into stubbornness.

The non-traditional oval-shaped coin bears a colored image of the Bull 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 behind Taurus presents a disk with a dozen zodiac signs. The composition of the reverse is completed by the Latin copy of TAURUS and the corresponding astrological symbol. Since the coins of the Czech Mint are licensed by the foreign issuer, the island of Niue, the obverse side bears its national emblem, the nominal value ONE DOLLAR (NZD) and the year of issue 2021. All this is surrounded by twelve astrological signs.
