Fortuna is considered one of the mightier gods in Roman mythology. Her father was believed to be Jupiter, King of the Gods. She was known as a bountiful goddess, and as yet another form she was known as Annonaria, a protector of grain supplies.
The depictions of Fortuna used throughout history and in other designs features common themes, most notably a blindfold or veil like the modern vision of Justice. Also, she has a cornucopia that speaks to her role as a bountiful goddess.
On the obverse face of the 1 Gram Palladium PAMP Suisse Fortuna Bar you’ll find a left-profile portrait of Fortuna. Her image features the goddess wearing a blindfold, with a cornucopia on her head spilling forth a bounty of coins. At the bottom of the bar is the image of her clutched hands catching the coins.
The reverse face of the coin bears the PAMP Suisse logo, as well as identifying markers. Engravings of the bar’s weight, purity, and metal content are featured, along with the assayer’s mark and the individual serial number of the bar.
