2022 Niue 2 Oz Silver Myths Of Love: Medea And Jason's Love
The Lithuanian Mint has created a series of coins depicting one of the most ancient stories from Greek mythology – the tale of Jason and the Argonauts, and their heroic quest for the Golden Fleece. The third coin in the series, ‘Medea’s and Jason’s Love’, is devoted to the emotion of victorious love.
It is often said that behind every successful man is a strong woman – the story of Medea and Jason shows that, too. It was the loving Medea who helped the hero to overcome the trials of King Aeëtes and steal the Golden Fleece. Medea uséd magical herbs to put the dragon that was guarding the fleece to sleep.
The third coin in the series commemorates the culmination of this amazing love story: the wedding of Jason and Medea. The reverse of the coin depicts this significant moment – the lovers are finally in each other’s arms, having overcome all odds.
The obverse features a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II surrounded by climbing vines. The coin is made from aged silver and is adorned with a ‘Swarovski’ crystal. Partial gilding, digital printing and high relief technologies were also uséd. This coin is a perfect gift not only for collectors, but also for newlyweds on their wedding day as a wish of eternal and all-conquering love.
