Creatures of Myth & Legend 0.5g Gold Capricornus Proof Tokelau Coin

 

The Year of the Goat arrived in 2015, and this 2015 Capricornus 0.5g Gold Proof Tokelau Coin

commemorates those born in 2015, those who are Capricorns, and those who are willing to work hard to achieve to achieve spectacular results, as well as those who collect rare coins.

 

The stunning Capricornus reveals his fish-like tail on the reverse side of this coin, on which more than half is this creature’s image and surrounding. The rest of the field is a mirrored surface. The obverse side of the gold coin depicts Queen Elizabeth II and the badge of Tokelau.

 

Capricornus, or Capricorn in astrological terminology, has long been associated with hard work and diligence as well as organization and discipline. The sure footed-goat knows his way to the top in any field.

Capricornus, the goat-fish, has been a part of mythology since the Middle Bronze Ages, and this legendary creature appears in the mythology of many cultures.

The name itself comes from an Arabic word for kid, which references the goat. Greek mythology elaborates on the birth of the Capricornus, explaining how the goat got its fishlike tail. The Capricornus is also recognized in Chinese, Nakh and Society Islands mythology as well, and the United States Navy named one of its Andromeda-class attack cargo ships the USS Capricornus.

Coin collectors know the value of adding this gold coin to their collections. It continues the popular Creatures of Myth & Legend series which includes the popular Pegasus, Unicorn and Aries coins you may already have. Tokelau recognizes this gold coin and official legal tender in its country.
