One look into the eyes of Medusa was said to turn any man to stone. According to Greek mythology, there was no man who could resist the gaze of Medusa, and none that could survive coming eye to eye with the snake-like beast. The question is, how did she become such a hideous creature?
Medusa was once one of the three gorgon sisters serving as priestesses to Athena. With golden hair and fair skin that made her one of the most beautiful women in the world, Medusa made a fatal error when she slipped on her vow of celibacy when she had an affair with Poseidon, God of the Seas.
On the obverse of the 5 oz Proof-Like Silver Medusa Round is the portrait of Medusa. Athena cursed the once beautiful woman for her betrayal, turning her golden locks into a head of snakes and transforming her natural beauty into that of a hideous snake. Only one man, Perseus, was able to defeat her by beheading her before she gazed into his eyes.
The reverse of all Silver Medusa Rounds include the image of the logo for the Anonymous Mint. In the logo design, there is an owl with its wings spread wide and wearing a crown that features the initials of the mint, “AM,” and holds the arrows and olive branch of war and peace. There are 13 stars arranged above the crown, along with the round’s weight, purity, and metal content.
All 5 oz Proof-Like Silver Medusa Rounds feature a mirrored finish that adds a brilliant appearance to these rounds. Anonymous Mint is a private minting facility that created this beautiful silver round series with the help of Coin Creator Julie Lindquist.
