The reverse of this silver coin shows Medea herself – a powerful woman, a crazy lover, and a fearsome sorceress who knows the meaning of infinite love, care, passion, and great betrayal. Medea has many faces and remains one of the most compelling female figures in Greek mythology. The coin depicts her at that stage of her life when she was happy and radiating beauty, sexuality and elegance. This madly strong feminine energy captivated Jason but the spells were not eternal.
The image of Medea in this coin by Lithuanian Mint is decorated with five SWAROVSKI crystals – four green ones symbolize flora, and the blue one is for water.
The obverse of the coin features a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, surrounded by ravishing climbing plants. UV printing and high relief technologies were used to make this new coin. The packaging of the work – a wooden box – has a unique aged design.
