Coin Story

As their Zodiac signs and meanings would indicate, Libra’s are all about balance, justice, equanimity and stability. They easily surround themselves with harmony and beauty, but sometimes go to extremes to do so if their goals are unreasonable or unhealthy. With Venus as their ruling planet, Libra’s are very understanding, caring, and often the champion of underdogs. They have keen intuitions, but often don’t give themselves enough credit for their perceptions. They can be quiet and shy if not persuaded to come out of their shell. Ironically and in spite of their introverted nature they make excellent debaters, often proving a point from out of seemingly nowhere.

About the Artist Kagaya:
A Japanese digital fine artist born in 1968, he has created artworks relating to the universe including CG animation pictures, digital prints, posters, illustrations for astronomical books and magazines. The main themes of his work are the universe, the blue planet, and humankind as a part of the universe - their dreams and yearnings.

Reverse Design

In the Golden Age, gods and people lived together on the ground. As people got more desire and disobeyed the Divine Providence, gods retreated altogether back to Heaven. Dike, the maiden goddess of justice, trusting human nature, remained alone on the ground to persuade them. But no heart would listen to her. So she threw her immortality up into the sky to change herself into the stars of Scale, Libra, asking eternally what is right and what is wrong.

Obverse Design

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

Packaging

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.
