In Greek mythology, the Sphinx is an enigmatic creature with the body of
a lion and the head of a woman, known for her cunning and merciless nature.
She famously guarded the city of Thebes, posing a riddle to all who sought
passage. Those unable to solve the riddle faced a fatal outcome. On the
high-relief design, the Sphinx sits menacingly beside human skulls, the remains
of those unlucky enough to pass through the gates. One skull, emphasized
with exquisite gilding, serves as a haunting reminder of a traveler who met
a tragic fate.
The ‘Sphinx’ coin showcases artistic excellence, embodying mystery and
intelligence on a 1 oz silver canvas.
