Every coin carries the privymark of the collection. The reverse impresses with its double high relief – a mermaid next to an open treasure chest. The earliest known mermaid legends come from Syria around 1000 B.C. where the Syrian goddess Atargatis dove into a lake to take the form of a fish, but the powers there would not allow her give up her great beauty, so only her bottom half became a fish and she kept her top half in human form.
