Vasa” was a Swedish ship, which was considered the most high-tech warship of those times. The story of what happened to the ship still remains a mystery among experts. Despite being one of the Swedish navy’s biggest achievements, Vasa sank within twenty minutes of setting sail, on this day in 1628. It claims 30 lives.

Engineering problems sank the ship – but this disaster has become a boon for archaeologists. In the XXI century, it was pulled from the bay and 98% of the ship’s original wood was still intact, making it the world’s best-preserved ship.

The remains of the ship can be found in Stockholm’s Vasa Museum. According to the museum, it is the only preserved 17th-century ship in the world, and the museum is a place for historical and anthropological study as well as for visitors from all over the world.

“The most spectacular warship ever built” is beautifully depicted on this coin.

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 Cancer.

The constellation of Cancer was named after the ancient Greek legend of Heracles, who encountered a hydro and its helper - a huge crayfish, while performing the legendary twelve tasks. Crabs in human form are vulnerable like fragile aquatic crustaceans - they are compassionate, receptive and empathetic, full of emotions. In addition to the stars, they are also ruled by Luna - the Moon, which symbolizes the desire to indulge in feelings and instincts. Cancer life is devoted to helping others, but they are also happy to be cared for. However, both can grow into emotional dependence. Their protective place is usually home and they like creative activities.

The non-traditional oval coin bears a colored image of Cancer on the reverse side. Photographs or computer graphics were not used as a template for coloring - the coin's author, Asamat Baltaev, DiS., created an original watercolor painting. The relief in the background behind Cancer presents a disk with a dozen zodiac signs. The composition of the reverse is supplemented with the Latin inscription CANCER, together with 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 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.
