No less charming than the previous edition of 2009, these new 2013 zodiac coins by the Republic of Belarus elegantly combine .925 silver and .999,9 gilding. Zodiac coins are always of current interest, for people adore precious keepsakes related to their zodiac signs and often believe that these astrological signs determine personality traits of a person as well as influence his or her life.
The obverse of the Capricorn silver coin features the fragment of an engraving published in ‘Ars Magna Lucis et Umbrae’ by A. Kircher, the work dwelling upon interaction between celestial bodies. The particular appeal of this coin is its transparent capsule that contains a movable silver filigree Capricorn symbol plated with gold. The name of the issuing country, the face value of the coin and its issuing year are also indicated on the obverse.
Represented on the reverse, there is the gilded image of a goat against the stylized depiction of the clock on the clock tower situated in St Mark’s Square in Venice. The reverse also contains the same gold-plated silver filigree Capricorn symbol in the transparent capsule as that on the obverse. Capricorn takes the tenth place among zodiac signs and is characterized by stability, calmness and maturity. It is often depicted as an animal with the body of a goat and the tail of a fish. This adorable zodiac coin is a perfect gift idea for friends and beloved ones born under the Capricorn sign.
