The only way to break free from the trap of greed is to have a good look at oneself, to stop idealizing luxury and wealth, and to pay more attention to natural human values such as love, family, and friendship. All this fits in the new silver coin “Mask”. This coin, created by the Lithuanian Mint, is like an instructive story about the flaws and virtues that govern each of us.
The reverse of the coin “Mask” depicts both sides of a person’s personality. The negative side is controlled by human flaws: greed, jealousy, pride and others. The positive side is restrained, respectful and tolerant. The bright side must outweigh the dark side, because happiness is not to be found in money or wealth. The dearest things are not what we can buy, but what we can know, learn, love …
The obverse of the coin features a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Technologies such as partial gilding, antique finish and high relief were used in the production of the coin. The impressive coin is sold in a special wooden box.
