    2015 Aries 1oz Silver Antique Finish Tokelau Coin

    Look to the night sky and you may see the head of a magical ram outlined in the stars. This ram is Aries. The ancient Greeks knew to look for this ram not because of the brilliance of the stars that announce the ram’s presence, but by the location; Aries hold the important place of announcing spring.

    Legend says that the ram Aries tried to save the nymph Nephele’s children from their stepmother, and the Greek revered the ram for his heroic efforts. According to the Greeks, it later was Jason and the Argonauts whose quest it was to locate the Golden Fleece borne by this ram. The owner of the Golden Fleece would become King of Thessaly.

    This antique silver coin depicts on its reverse side the mighty ram as he leaps confidently across the constellation that bears his name. At the top of the ram’s spectacular horns, you can see the stars Hamal, Sheratan and Mesarthim, which outline his head. Aries is a dynamic figure that is muscle bound, and you can easily see the luxuriousness of his thick and long fleece.

    The obverse side of the coin bears the two familiar images in all Tokelau coins: the cameo of Queen Elizabeth II and the royal badge of Tokelau, where this coin is legal tender.

    This attractive coin is made from one ounce of pure silver, minted with superior quality, and then treated with an antique finish that will delight you for years to come when you place it with pride in your coin collection.
