The Twelve Labours of Hercules are a terrific idea for a coin series, combining a well known character from ancient mythology, with a fascinating and exciting series of adventures. The first issue last year featured the Nemean Lion, generally thought of to be the first of the tasks undertaken, and it looks like the mint will release them in rough chronological order – if such a thing is realistic for fantasy tales.

As is common for this kind of coin from the Mint of Poland, this is a rimless, ultra-high-relief, fine-silver coin of two ounces in weight and with an antique finish. The highlighted area, in this case three of the Hydra heads, are picked out with gilding and this will remain the signature of the series. The common obverse is surrounded by a twelve small cameo images, with the one that matches the coin reverse also enjoying a gilded finish. The coin serial number is engraved into the edge and will match the enclosed certificate of authenticity.
