The new Legendary Weapons series by the British Virgin Islands is represented by three .925 silver gilded coins dedicated to the Bow of Hercules, Excalibur and Ascalon. Each coin is available in an individual wooden single case with the mintage quantity of 3 000 pieces or in a 3-coin collection case limited to 500 pieces only.
The obverse of the coin renders the portrait of Her Majesty Elizabeth II. It is surrounded by the inscriptions denoting the Queen’s name, the face value of the coin, the name of the issuing country and the year of mintage.
The gilded image of the legendary bow shares the coin reverse with the relief depiction of Hercules shooting it. Known as the strongest of all mortals, Hercules was the last mortal son of Zeus. This man of immeasurable strength possessed the bow that shot arrows like no other, for the latter were sure to cause wounds that couldn’t be healed. Each arrow was individually dipped in the poisonous blood of the great Lernaean Hydra. The inscriptions on the reverse include the name of the coin and its face value. The coin will be a great addition to a collection of unique history-themed coins. Don’t miss out yours!
