Medusa was one of the most reviled, and unfortunate, figures in Ancient Greece. Once a beautiful maiden, Medusa was forced to live out her days as a hideous beast with a terrible power because she crossed the god Athena. That personal offense cost Medusa her beauty and would eventually lead to her death at the hands of Perseus. Today, you have the opportunity to purchase 1 oz Silver Medusa Rounds online from Provident Metals.
The story of Medusa starts with a beautiful maiden. Medusa was one of the three Gorgon sisters, beautiful sisters with golden hair and fair skin. Medusa was a priestess in the temple of Athena. One of the vows a priestess of Athena had to take was a vow of celibacy. The god of the sea, Poseidon, seduced Medusa and she broke her vows of celibacy in the temple of Athena, angering the goddess.
On the obverse side of the 1 oz Silver Medusa Rounds is a depiction of Medusa in front-facing relief. The border surrounding the design element on this face of the round includes a classic Greek key pattern. As punishment for breaking her vows, Medusa was transformed from a beautiful maiden into a hideous creature whose simple glance could turn a human being to stone.
The reverse face of the 1 oz Silver Medusa Rounds includes a vision of the Anonymous Mint logo. This design features various Anonymous Mint products and is loosely inspired by the heraldic eagle of the United States. Instead of an eagle, however, the Anonymous Mint logo features a wise owl with three arrows in its talons and a crown on its head that bears the A.M. initials. There are 13 stars above the Anonymous Mint logo arranged in a row of six, a row of four, and a row of three. Other inscriptions on this side include 1 Ounce .999 Fine Silver. At the bottom, there is an inscription that reads Anonymous Mint with a beaded border nearby on the bottom half.
When Athena learned of Medusas transgression in her temple, she punished Medusa by transforming her fair skin to a green hue and replacing her flowing golden hair with a head full of snakes. Once a symbol of beauty men could gaze at for hours, she was now a hideous beast whose very sight would instantly turn people to stone.
