Coin Story

Amazing silver coin devoted to the magic lunisolar calendar. The coin is decorated with a unique design and ornamented with twelve Swarovski crystals. A magic theme combined with artistic craftsmanship makes this coin a perfect gift to everyone!
The first century Jewish historian "Josephus" proclaimed a connection between the twelve stones in Aaron's breastplate, the twelve months of the year, and the twelve signs of the zodiac. Translations and interpretations of the passage in Exodus regarding the breastplate have varied widely, however, with Josephus himself giving different lists for the twelve stones.
In the eight and ninth century religious treaties were written associating a particular stone with an apostle, as Revelation stated their name would be inscribed on the Foundation Stones, and his virtue. Practice became to keep twelve stones and wear one a month. Wearing a single birthstone is only a few centuries old, although modern authorities differ on dates: Kunz places the custom in eighteenth century Poland, while the Gemological Institute of America starts it in Germany in the 1560s.
Early civilizations, such as those in India and Babylon, have attributed gemstones with magical properties and especially to their relationship with the signs of the zodiac. Over time, astrologers assigned gems of certain colors to the twelve signs of the zodiac to help people influence the planets in their favor.

Reverse Design

The coin reverse is decorated with twelve colored Swarovsky crystal, one for each month of year. The crystals surround a beautiful sun that makes the magic and special design.
