Coin Story

Those born under the sign of Cancer, ruled by the Moon, are one of the Zodiacs enigmas. It is fair to say that most Cancerians are a bundle of contradictions. Compassionate and caring with friends, family and lovers, yet they can be quick to provide remarks and ever changing moods. Endearingly eccentric on one hand, and on the other they worry about how others see them. Just as the moon goes through many changes as it moves from its new to full phases, Cancers too go through many new and full phases of experience. Life doesnt stand still for this sign, even if they remain in one place, because they live so much in their internal oceans of emotions.

Reverse Design

In the silence of the lake, waves lap softly onto the broken legs. "Sleep in peace at the bottom of the blue Heaven." With the merciful voice of Hera, the goddess of gods, the figure of the big crab goes far up into the sky to become the stars, shining dimly and deeply.

Obverse Design

The obverse of the coin features the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.


Each coin is presented in a closed colourful blister pack to prevent damage to the coins. This rectangular coin is a perfect gift or addition to your collection. Each 1oz Silver Coin comes with an individually numbered certificate of authenticity issued by New Zealand Mint
