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.

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

Scorpio is the second Mars sign, and the one that most relates to Ares: while the fiery aspects of Aries might relate to him to some extent, it’s the more emotional Scorpio that resonates closer to him and his primal nature. As the later Autumn sign, Scorpio is related to Winter’s start, and thus to sunset-like conditions: as the Sun dims, so does life. Scorpio is defined by it’s loyalty bordering on possessiveness, as well as a rather strong impulsive nature but consciously made subtle or even outright hidden. Ares displays a surprising amount of loyalty to his family, even when most of Olympus doesn’t like him very much, and while numerous, his affairs are occult, unlike Zeus’ or Apollo’s. This reflects water as darkness: driven by strong impulses, but with the element of mystery and hidden nature. Due to Scorpio’s vindictiveness and hidden nature, it is often considered the most malign of the signs, just as Ares is the most distrusted of the Olympians, but neither are “evil” and while unpleasant they are necessary for the inner workings of nature. Darkness is after all important to health in it’s Melatonin friendliness, especially when it’s connected to water.

Hephaestus‘ correspondence with Libra is derived from his role as the smith god. By crafting fire, he made the weapons that the gods use to impose justice, down to the scales of Dike, the goddess of justice, often thought to be the woman depicted in the sign. As just, Hephaestus is a god of innovation, taming the chaos of the flames to produce items to impose civilization.

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 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.

he 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 Libra.

While all other animal constellations depict living creatures, Libra is the only inanimate object. However, they are by no means a mere tool. They symbolize law and justice and are conveniently found near the constellation Virgo, which is identified with the ancient goddess of justice, Dike. People born under the sign of Libra tend to be prudent, balanced and harmonious. They always consider all possible consequences before committing to something, which often turns into excessive hesitation and indecision. Libras also tend to be very tactful, charming and sociable and display a refined aesthetic sense.

The unusual oval-shaped coin bears a coloured image of Libra on the reverse, supported by a baroque cherub. 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 Libra presents a disc with a dozen zodiac signs. The composition of the reverse side is completed by the Latin inscription LIBRA and the corresponding astrological symbol.

In 1996, the logo is relaunched and developed in other forms : a new 3D version is created and new expressions are added in. Nowadays, from the smiley to the emoticon, smiling takes multiple forms, becoming a representative of cheerfulness !

Since the creation of the yellow smile in 1972, Smiley diversified the range of its expressions, conveying over a hundred émotions. From the smiley to the emoticon, smiling takes multiple forms.
