Coin Story

Mercury’s name comes from the Latin word “merx” meaning “goods”. Usually he is depicted while holding a herald’s staff accompanied by an inscription: FORTUNA REDUX – hence the origin of the name of this coin. In the days of the Roman Empire the cult of Mercury was widely distributed, and the Julius Caesar proclaimed him the most popular god in Britain and Gaul. At Mercuralia celebrated on 15th May merchants would come to have their heads and goods sprinkled with water from his well so as to ensure success in their private and professional lives.
