    Description

    The reverse of the coin features the character of Nelly Longarms, which is a well-known mythical being in English folklore. She lives in the depths of ponds, rivers, and wells, and with her long muscular arms, she catches disobedient children who come too close to these waters.

     

    In folklore, the archetype of witch is associated not only with evil but also with knowledge, wisdom, regeneration, and vitality. The characteristics of this witch, such as the ability to instantly transform shapes – turning into a snake, bird, goat, or other creature – are skillfully revealed by depicting a swarm of frogs, a tangled nest of squirming snakes, and motifs of a crow. The multiplicity of mythical beings is immortalized at the edges of the coin – bones resurface like frames symbolizing all that is indestructible. In the middle a high relief, gilded devil in the form of a goat, surrounded by the witch immediately draws one’s attention.

     

    This magical and fairy tale inspired 50mm diameter coin, weighing 2 ounces of antique silver, will enchant both devoted collectors and anyone who views the world through archetypes.
