The first two releases of this series of five 2oz Fine Silver coins illustrating famous myths known the world over has proven to be extremely popular and we are therefore delighted to announce the release of the third coin. This stunning series of five 2oz Fine Silver coins have been produced in High Relief with each coin being Antique Finished by hand bringing the amazing featured characters to life.
Designed to thrill, entertain and inspire the listeners, the ancient Myths contain morals which teach different virtues: love, courage, self-reliance and strength. They also teach that vices such as jealousy, greed, treachery and greed have consequences.
The third coin in the series features The Hydra. The image on the coin shows Hercules fighting the Hydra with the crab also shown attacking Hercules with the high relief and antique finish on the coining really showing how monstrous the Hydra was.
The story of the Twelve Labours of Hercules is well known all over the world. These were feats that Hercules had to complete over 12 years as a penance – feats considered so difficult that they seemed impossible. The second labour of Hercules was to kill the Lernean Hydra, a monstrous nine-headed serpent who terrorised the local countryside and attacked with poisonous venom. This monster was not easily defeated as one of the nine heads was immortal and therefore indestructible. The Hydra also had assistance from a huge crab which would bite Hercules’ foot. After removing and destroying the eight mortal heads by sealing the neck to prevent replacement heads growing, Hercules cut off the ninth head and buried it in the ground covered with a heavy rock.
A further two coins will be released to add to this series featuring The Centaur and Medusa.
