The obverse of this coin offers a stunning image created with the help of frosted devices over mirrored fields. It depicts Europa, a figure of Greek mythology, riding on the back of a bull. The image is inspired by the story of Zeus abducting Europa. According to the myth, the Greek god disguised himself as a bull and mingled in with animals owned by Europa’s father. Acting as a tame bull helped hide his actions from a jealous Hera while convincing Europa to come nearer. She petted him and even climbed on his back. At that time, he started running, taking off across the land all the way to the sea. As a bull, Zeus swam across the sea, taking Europa with him to Crete. After giving birth to three sons of Zeus, Europa is said to have married a king of Crete. The myth says that Zeus put the constellation Taurus in the sky to commemorate the story.
The reverse of the coin includes the effigy of Elizabeth II. The image is the one created by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998. It’s a popular portrait of the queen and is used around the globe on coins. The reverse also makes use of frosted devices on mirrored fields, including the bordering inscriptions, which spell out Elizabeth II as well as the nation, denomination, and minting year of the coin.
