Coin Story

Apart from the fairy tales which are well-known around the world, the Fairy Tales series also presents national fairy tales with a universal message. The images on the coins are little gems which capture many symbols due to which the fairy tales are no more ordinary narratives but touch upon the world of magic.

This is one of the best-known works of Yakub Kolas, a classic of Belarusian literature and a national poet. Simon the Musician is a poetic story about the fate of a talented musician Simon, his quest for the truth and sense of life – the story is a curious hymn about national art presented as the eternal source of spiritual force of the nation.

Reverse Design

At the top of the coin - an ornament with a red inset – the symbol of a song, an octagonal “aurora” – the symbol of a human being, a system of four squares – the concept of justice, all of which encapsulate the message of the literary work. On the right: an image of a boy who lively plays the violin, the title Simon the Musician, and elements of a landscape: images of a field, a castle, and a cottage house in the background. At the bottom - a semicircular inscription in Belarusian: “Simon the Musician”.
