The Lady Fortuna is said to be the Goddess of chance, luck and fate. She was the goddess of luck, good and bad, in Ancient Rome. She was an extremely popular goddess in Ancient times. It is said that Fortuna was the first born child of Jupiter. She is often seen carrying a cornucopia, also called Horn Of Plenty with unlimited amounts of riches pouring out of the cornucopia.
Goddess Fortuna was also known as “Fortuna Primigenia”, meaning “the first mother”. She ruled the wheel of fortune and when she spun the wheel no one knew ahead of time where they would “drop”. Their luck could change for the better or worse.
This is the third coin in the series and this design takes a more modern approach in its design to the previous issues. Here Fortuna is seen with flowing hair and the wheel of fortune forms an ornament in her hair from which gold coins flow down onto her shoulder representing the cornucopia. Surrounding the central image, in stunning proof quality are decorative design elements and the lettering ‘Rota Fortuna’ meaning the Wheel of Fortune and ‘Fortuna Venit’ meaning may fortune come.
