The Polyphemus coin, crafted from 1 oz of .999 silver and measuring 45 mm in diameter, captures the awe and dread of the legendary Cyclops. The obverse features Polyphemus bathed in shadows, his single eye glowing ominously red, evoking the raw, untamed nature of ancient myths with intricate textures and detailing of his rugged skin.
