Description

Following the release of the first three coins, 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 fourth coin. This coin features the snake-headed Gorgon, Medusa in stunning 2oz Fine Silver produced in High Relief with Antique Finished which brings the amazing featured character 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 image on the coin shows Medusa surround by figures that have been turned into stone and Neptune’s trident can be seen in the surrounding water. The high relief and antique finish effects on the coin bring this mythical character to life, emphasising the venomous snakes in place of her hair. A final coin will be released to add to this series featuring The Centaur.

Medusa was originally a beautiful young woman whose crowning glory was her long hair and she was therefore desired and courted by many suitors.  Before she could be betrothed to a husband, Neptune found her worshipping in the temple of Athena and ravished her.  Athena was so angry that her sacred temple had been violated she turned Medusa’s beautiful tresses into snakes which gave her the power to turn anything who looked directly at her into stone.
