The vision of Medusa as a demon varies by source, but one thing is for sure: her gaze could turn any man to stone. Medusa was once said to be a beautiful, blonde-haired maiden who was one of the gorgon sisters. However, Athena cursed Medusa to a life of hatred and fear by men.
Medusa fell in love with and developed a relationship with the God of the Sea, Poseidon. After she lay with him in Athena’s temple, Athena responded by turning Medusa’s blonde hair to snakes, her fair skin to a green-blue hue, and making her so unattractive to men that a mere glance in her eyes would freeze them in stone for eternity.
On the obverse of the 1 oz Proof-Like Silver Medusa Round you’ll find the portrait of Medusa that includes a full head of snakes. Medusa turned countless men to stone until Perseus, half-man, half-god, conquered her by decapitating her and giving her head to Athena.
The reverse of the 1 oz Proof-Like Silver Medusa round is the image of the Anonymous Mint’s logo. The United States Mint uses the American bald eagle in a heraldic eagle design, and the Anonymous Mint has its own take on that classic image. Set behind a shield holding arrows and an olive branch in its talons, you’ll find not an American bald eagle by a wise and insightful owl.
Coin Creator Julie Lindquist developed the Medusa Silver Round series Anonymous Mint. The mint itself is a private minting facility that produces all of its products in the United States of America. Each of these 1 oz Proof-Like Silver Medusa Rounds has a proof, mirrored finish and includes individual serial numbers on the edge of the round.
