Medusa is shown on the obverse side of the 1 oz Silver Medusa Round. This portrait captures an angry Medusa glaring forward at you the viewer. Her head of snakes of wriggling and ready to turn all those who look her in the eyes to stone. Medusa was one of the most popular figures from Greek mythology.
Once a beautiful maiden with golden hair and fair skin, Medusa was one of the three gorgons and a priestess of Athena. As a priestess of the goddess, she had to live a life of celibacy but fell short of that. After being seduced by Poseidon and becoming pregnant with the sea god’s child, Medusa suffered the wrath of Athena and was transformed from a beautiful maiden to a hideous beast whose gaze turned men to stone.
The Anonymous Mint logo is featured on the reverse face of the Silver Medusa Rounds. In this design, the logo bears a depiction of an owl in front-facing relief with a crown on the bird’s head. The crown on the bird’s head bears the initials of the mint, “A.M.” There are thirteen stars over the owl’s head as well arranged in a row of six, a row of four, and a row of three.
