Description

The majestic griffin adorns our 5th issue of the popular «Numismatic Icons» series. In Greek mythology, this captivating hybrid of eagle and lion is regarded as guardian of gold and protector of precious treasures. As one of the most cherished mythological beings of the Middle Ages, the Griffin remains a popular heraldic symbol to this day. The birthplace of these impressive Griffin coins is the ancient Thracian city of Abdera.

 

The griffin is accompanied by the cicada, a popular additional motif on numerous ancient coins. The CI numerals follow the tradition of ancient Greek coinage to indicate the respective place of origin. As usual, the edition includes three fantastic specifications in silver and gold.
