Following the release of the previous four 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 final coin in the series. This stunning series of five 2oz Fine Silver coins has been produced in High Relief with each coin being Antique Finished by hand bringing the amazing featured characters to life.

Designed by the Pobjoy Mint 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 fifth coin in the series features the Centaur.

Centaurs are half-human, half-horse creatures from Greek mythology with the torso, head and arms of a man and the body of a horse. One story has them as the offspring of Ixion, King of the Lapiths, and Nephele, a cloud made in the image of Hera but as with all Greek myths there are different theories. Although most centaurs were depicted as lustful and wild, one of the best known centaurs is Chiron who was a wise centaur known for his medicinal skills and teaching abilities.

The image on the coin features an image of a Centaur taking part in an Ancient Greek battle. The design also shows other Greek soldiers and a Greek style building in the background. The high relief and antique finish effects on the coin bring this mythical character to life, emphasising the power nature of his unusual body.
