Niue has created a series of coins telling one of the oldest Greek myths – Jason and the Argonauts and their quest for the golden fleece. This time, we present the third coin in this series, Medea and Jason’s Love, dedicated to the feeling of victorious love.
The third coin in the series tells of Medea herself, her inspiring and self-sacrificing love for her beloved and its power. It was she who aided Jason in his tasks set by King Aeetes. None other than his beloved Medea helped Jason steal the fleece. It was she who used magical herbs to put the fleece-protecting dragon to sleep.
The coin is dedicated to the culmination of this special love story – the commemoration of Jason and Medea’s wedding. This moment, special to them, is depicted on the reverse of the coin. Jason and Medea are finally in each other’s arms, all adversity behind them. The aged silver coin is decorated with a Swarovski crystal, and UV printing and high relief were also used. The obverse of the coin features a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II surrounded by climbing plants.
