ANCIENT GREECE PAN – PANTICAPAEUM – COOK ISLANDS 0.5g .9999 gold coin
In Greek mythology, Pan is the god of the wild, shepherds and flocks. Often associated with fertility and depicted in bestial form. Originally worshipped in Arcadia, his name is derived from paon, meaning pasturer, but was also associated with pan, meaning all. Depicted as a lustful figure with goat-like features resembling a faun or satyr, Pan was chiefly concerned with flocks and herds, often playing the pipes and resting at noon.
The obverse carries the Ian Rank Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II on it and is issued under the authority of the Cook Islands.
