Description
 
The Herd Has Arrived...

Outside of the Medusa, the Centaur is easily one of the most iconic Mythological Creatures of all-time. These enormous beasts are half-man and half-horse and often depicted as having the lower body of a horse and the upper torso and head of a man. They were considered to be the children of Ixion, the king of Lapiths, and Nephele, a magical cloud created in the image of Zeus’ wife the goddess Hera.

The design of the coin itself depicts the Centaur in the middle of an epic Greek battle, with its bow drawn and an arrow knocked ready to strike as it rides into the fray. Other Greek soldiers can be seen in the background fighting for their lives; also visible is on the left side is a Greek Parthenon-style building.

The Last Silver Creature is Finally Here!

These special 2 oz. silver Centaur's have what is called an Antique finish. Each piece is struck from 2oz. of .999 pure silver and then as the last step in the production process they use a special Antique finish that deepens the design and truly brings the image to life! Once you combine this incredibly designed coin with its maximum allowed mintage of 650 it is easy to see why this series are the most sought after coins of 2018!
