What’s your sign? The 12 signs of the zodiac (and their corresponding glyphs) each occupy a 30-degree section of the night sky on this 2 oz. fine silver keepsake. On your coin’s reverse, metallic colour adds a spellbinding shimmer to the deep hues and engraved illustrations that capture the mystery and allure of the zodiac. The 12 zodiac symbols are all derived from the constellations, the stars that form a belt across both the heavens and this coin, where the celestial patterns remain hidden until viewed under a black light (included).
Enhanced with metallic colour, your coin’s reverse features a zodiac wheel designed by artist Jori van der Linde. This celestial circle is divided into 12 30‑degree sections that house each of the 12 signs of the zodiac; these are arranged in a counter-clockwise direction, as indicated by the roman numerals on the outer ring: Aries (“I”), Taurus (“II”), Gemini (“III”), Cancer (“IV”), Leo (“V”), Virgo (“VI”), Libra (“VII”), Scorpio (“VIII”), Sagittarius (“IX”), Capricorn (“X”), Aquarius (“XI”) and Pisces (“XII”). Each zodiac sign is paired with its corresponding glyph, and together, these 12 glyphs form an inner ring that surrounds the combined sun and moon motif at the centre of the wheel. When viewed under a black light, the 12 zodiac constellations appear in the inner ring. The obverse features a field pattern and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
