Story

Ancient astrology

The roots of astrology lie in the idea that an individual’s character and fate is somehow linked to the arrangement of the celestial bodies at the time of their birth. The respected Greek astronomer Ptolemy gave the concept scientific respectability in the 2nd century AD, describing the zodiac (meaning ‘circle of little animals’) to represent 12 constellations, matching them with the month of their apparent ascendancy.

Stellar design

The coin’s stellar design portrays coloured artistry of each star sign, accompanied by inscriptions of its name and its pictogram. At the centre of the design is a stylised motif representing the Sun.
