Description

This coin opens a new impressive series that is called “Goddesses of Health”.
Hygieia was the goddess of health, cleanliness, and hygiene. Salus, in Roman
religion, the goddess of safety and welfare, later identified with the Greek
Hygieia. As well as on this coin, she was regularly represented as Hygieia, with
patera and sacred snake, and with ears of grain, symbolizing prosperity. The
bowl represents a medicinal potion, and the snake represents healing.
However, decorations on the coin will attract not only ancient mythology
lovers but also the most demanding connoisseurs of numismatics. The digital
printing technique greatly illustrates the goddess, emphasizing the smallest
details of this unique coin.
