This amazing 2 oz silver coin is a part of the “Twelve Labours of Hercules” series. It is dedicated to one of the Twelve Labours – capturing the Erymanthian Boar.
In Greek mythology, the Erymanthian Boar was an enormous mythical creature with foaming jaws that took the form of a shaggy boar. It was an Erymanthian Boar that lived in the glens of Lampeia beside the vast marsh of Erymanthus. It would emerge from the thick-wooded heights of Erymanthus" to "harry the groves of Arcady" and abuse the land of Psophis.
The fourth labour of Heracles was to bring the Erymanthian boar alive to Eurystheus in Mycenae. To capture the boar, Heracles first chased the boar with shouts and then drove the exhausted animal into deep snow. He trapped it, bound it in chains and returned with the boar on his left shoulder. He cast it down in the entrance to the assembly of the Mycenaeans, thus completing his fourth labour. When the king Eurystheus saw him carrying the boar on his shoulders, he was terrified and hid in a bronze vessel.
The reverse of the coin contains a wonderful image of Hercules fighting against the Erymanthian Boar, which features incredible gilded tusks. The obverse of the coin depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, surrounded by the Twelve Labours of Hercules and the Erymantian Boar, which is gilded.
The coin has high relief strike and contains a fantastic artwork on both coin sides. It is decorated with select pure gold gilding on the reverse. The serial number is engraved on the rim. The low mintage is limited to 500 coins for global distribution. Each coin is packed in a beautiful wood case with a colourful graphic dust jacket and has a numbered certificate of authenticity from the Mint of Poland.
