Description

Mythical Creatures – Harpy

They were generally depicted as birds with the heads of maidens, faces pale with hunger and long claws on their hands. Roman and Byzantine writers detailed their ugliness. Pottery art depicting the harpies featured beautiful women with wings. Ovid described them as human-vultures. The Czech Mint are currently preparing a description of their latest release in the Mythical Creatures series..

Reverse

The reverse side of the coin was designed by medal maker Asamat Baltaev, DiS. It presents a harpy with outstretched wings. The depiction of the creature is supplemented with an English inscription HARPY. The coin does not have a classic coin frame, however, the relief is surrounded by decorative ornaments that permeate the entire collector´s cycle.

Obverse

As the coins of the Czech Mint are published with the foreign license of the island of Niue, their obverse side bears the name and portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, the nominal value of 2 DOLLARS (NZD) and the year of issue 2020.

Presented in a small coin box with an enclosed certificate of authenticity. A collector’s book is offered where you can store all twelve silver coins from the collection Mythical Creatures
