    2015 Capricornus 1oz Silver Antique Tokelau Coin

    The horned goat represents Capricornus, the constellation known to humans since the second century when Ptolemy identified it. The brightest star in the Capricornus constellation is Deneb Algedi, which refers to a ”tail.” Capricorn is the sea-goat, distinctive because of its goat shaped body and fish-like tail.

    Myths and legend abound with stories of the Capricornus; this goat has been associated with nursing the Greek god Zeus. The goat has also been associated with the goat-god Pan, who saved himself by growing a fish tail and diving into a river.

    Capricorn is known in western astrology for being precise and sure-footed. The zodiac suggests that those born under this constellation are detailed oriented individuals.

    You may love the detail in this attractive coin. Capricornus rests partially on land and partially in the sea. The goat’s hooves are pointed toward land where the goat will climb to its goals. This silver coin has a rich satin antique finish.

    The obverse of the coin depicts Queen Elizabeth II and the royal badge of Tokelau. You will note that the coin is legal tender in Tokelau, where the Queen is the monarch.

    Coin collectors adore collecting Tokelau coins, and this Capricornus Silver Antique Tokelau Coin meets and exceeds their every expectation because of its purity, quality and beautiful design.
