Description

This large format $30 fine silver coin from the Royal Canadian Mint is an artistic fusion of ancient mythology with modern technology. Set against a background of deep sky blue metallic colour, each of the classic zodiac symbols is included with a transforming glow in the dark effect activated by the included black light. When the black light is turned on, the hidden constellations from which each sign is derived are magically revealed. Mintage is limited to just 4,000. HST/GST exempt.

While we all know our own astrological sign and we may even enjoy the horoscopes and personality traits traditionally associated with each sign, you might not have known that the origins of astrology link back to ancient Greek mythology, with every sign of the zodiac representing a Greek god, goddess or other important figure from mythology. In fact, the origins of astrology date back over 4000 years to some of the first great civilizations of the world. These societies used constellations to predict the changes of the seasons, climatic events, and as part of their religious worldview.

The names of the constellations of the western zodiac come from the 12 Olympian gods of Greek mythology. Each god is the protector of his own sign, and every sign denotes a different personality type, with its own strengths and weaknesses. Each sign is influenced by a planet or star. These bear the names of figures from ancient Roman mythology which have an equivalent in Greek mythology, for example, Venus is Aphrodite and the Sun is Helios.
