In ancient Greek mythology, one figure stands as a timeless symbol of transition
and passage — the enigmatic Charon, the ferryman of souls. According to
ancient myths, those who have passed away have to cross the rivers Styx and
Acheron to reach the underworld. With a lantern in hand, he ushers departed
spirits on a one-way journey, their passage shrouded in mystery and awe of the
unknown. His fee for carrying the dead across the rivers to the underworld is a
coin. On the 1 oz collectible, several gilded coins are depicted in Charon’s hand,
reminding us that every journey has its price.
The Charon coin endures as a testament to the eternal balance between the
worlds where the currency is not of gold, but of destiny itself.
