Hestia's main sign if Capricorn, which stresses her more subtle but relevant nature. Capricorn, like Sagittarius, also stresses order, stability and stoicness. More so, it takes theses traits further and is a sign associated with practicality, hard work, strong will and stubbornness. Hestia, as the perpetual tender of the flames, is definitely a very hard working and practical goddess, and while I by no means would refer to her as “stubborn”, she does have a strong will in what little myths she appears in. Capricorn is also relevant in it’s role in the Zodiac. It’s the sign that covers the Winter Solstice, when the Sun is at it’s lowest, being opposite to Cancer. Thus, not only does it coincide with the time of the year where Hestia’s influence is most important, as well as to her role as the center, it also coincides with a liminal time in the Zodiac, when the Sun is reborn.

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.

The likeable and intelligent domestic pig has been kept by humans for some 9,000 years. In present-day Austria, pork is still by far the most popular meat and plays a starring role in Austrian cuisine.

In former times, the pig was a symbol of plenty because it could sustain an entire family for a considerable amount of time. The popular Austrian expression ‘Schwein gehabt’ (literally ‘had pig’), meaning to be fortunate in one’s misfortune, is said to have been coined in the 16th century during times when people did not have enough to eat. The lucky ones were those who had at least one pig. Maybe the pig can be a sign of hope for us all in these troubled times, because something unforeseen and pleasant can happen even when there is no sign of light at the end of the tunnel. We wish you unexpectedly pleasant experiences in 2023 and hope that by the year’s end you too can say that you have had pig!

The obverse of the nine-sided coin shows the coats of arms of all nine of the provinces of Austria. The coin’s reverse features the head of a pig, its snout slightly raised above a crop of lucky four-leafed clovers. A pig and four-leafed clovers – two lucky symbols for the price of one!
