It is the second coin in The Witcher Bookseries limited edition.
The series was opened in 2019 by “The Last Wish” coin,
its name refers to the novels by Andrzej Sapkowski by the same title.
The main scene on the reverse – often described by experts and fans as one of the most important in the saga of The Witcher – presents three characters.
The Queen of Brokilon – Eithne – is holding the goblet and hands it to Ciri –
– the one of the main figures in the Witcher saga. Next to her is Dryad Braenn.
The goblet is filled with the Brokilone Water, containing special powers.
Drinking water from the goblet is to determine the fate of Ciri and the others –
– she may choose to stay in Brokilon or follow her destiny.
In the background we see Geralt The Witcher, who has killed
a skolopendromorf – a forest creature attacking the local residents.
The obverse is decorated with ornaments and symbols related to the Brokilon Forest and Geralt’s attributes: swords and a wolf symbol.
Every detail of the reverse is perfectly visible thanks to the high relief – and the whole looks very vividly – inspired by the world presented in the novels.
The accessories also attract attention. The Witcher’s sword was plated with pure gold. The most important element of the decoration, the goblet, was made in a very special, hand-polished multilayered 3D glass.
