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.

A coin the likes of which Austria has never seen before, Democracy is made from copper from the former roof of the Parliament building in Vienna. When you purchase the coin you therefore acquire a little piece of democracy and by spending 5 euros you get something priceless in return.

On the occasion of the reopening of the Parliament building in Vienna, we are issuing this very special coin. The copper it contains originally formed part of the former roof of the building but was removed during the ongoing renovation of the building. By using it to make the copper edition of the Democracy coin, we are making our democratic tradition something tangible. A strong democracy thrives on discourse. Our opinions may differ, but our consensus is democracy. Likewise, fundamental rights and freedoms make a democracy what it is. They enable individual and social freedom and guarantee the co-determination of the individual.

The coin’s reverse features two heads in profile and one full face, which represent the people as sovereign. To the left, we see a watchful eye surrounded by stylised laurel leaves, to the right, we see a section of the Austrian Parliament building in the background. But much more than this, the coin illustrates the spirit from which our nation was born. This is reflected in the Austrian Constitution, where it says: "Austria is a democratic republic. Its law emanates from the people." These wise words appear on the top and bottom edges of the coin.

The €5 collectors’ coin “Swallowtail” is made of a cupronickel alloy. It weighs 9.68 g, measures 27.25 mm in diameter and will be available both in mint condition and with a proof-like finish.

The coin was designed by Bastian Prillwitz, an artist based in Berlin (picture side), and Andre Witting, a Berlin-based artist (reverse).

The reverse, which will be used for all coins in the series, features an eagle, the words “BUNDESREPUBLIK DEUTSCHLAND”, the value and denomination, the year 2023, the twelve stars of Europe and the letter “G” for the State Mint of Karlsruhe.
