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.

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

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 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 Leo.

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 the motifs of the 12 signs of the zodiac will become not only beautiful, but also a valuable talisman for anyone born under the sign of Sagittarius.

Old star charts attribute the constellation Sagittarius to the form of a mythical centaur, half man and half horse, armed with a bow and arrow. Some see him as Cheiron, others as Fola - wise figures from ancient mythology and friends of the demigod Heracles. According to the teachings of astrologers, people born under the sign of Sagittarius tend to be optimistic or even idealistic. They are also confident adventurers who are always looking for new challenges. They are full of enthusiasm and so can sometimes appear arrogant or reckless. Another characteristic is their sincerity, which is sometimes so strong that it unwittingly hurts...
