The famous mythological stories, tales and legends are designed to entertain, thrill and inspire the listeners. These ancient Myths contain morals teaching the virtues of love, courage, strength and self-reliance. They also teach the consequences of vices associated with jealousy, greed, deceit and treachery.
The famous stories with their monsters and scary creatures are known the world over and this stunning issue of five 2oz Fine Silver coins has been produced in High Relief with each coin being Antique Finished by hand bringing these amazing characters to life.
The first coin being issued features The Siren. A further four coins will be released to add to this series featuring The Hydra, The Minotaur, The Centaur and Medusa.
The Sirens were beautiful but dangerous creatures, usually depicted as mermaids, that lured the sailors with their beautiful voices and music to their doom, causing the ships to crash on the rocks near their island. The image of the coin depicts a Siren sitting on the rocks playing her harp. The skulls that can be seen around her on the rocks represent the sailors that had previously been lured and their ships wrecked. The latest ship to be attracted to the wonderful music can be seen in the background.
