Immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of Greek mythology with the PEGASOS Numismatic Icons 1 Oz Gold Coin. This exceptional coin captures the legendary winged horse, Pegasus, in all its majestic glory. According to Greek mythology, Pegasus was born from the union of Poseidon and Medusa. When Medusa was slain by Perseus, Pegasus emerged from her neck, symbolizing the enduring immortality of the soul. Known as a symbol of poetic inspiration, Pegasus, like Poseidon, possessed the power to create water streams by striking its hoof. The springs Hippocrene, named "Horse Spring," were believed to have been brought forth by Pegasus himself.
The ancient city-state of Corinth, a prosperous seaport, produced distinctive coins that featured Pegasus as a prominent motif. Drawing from this numismatic history, CIT now brings the iconic symbol of Pegasus to a modern coin. Leveraging the enhanced smartminting® technology, this coin seamlessly combines the ancient design elements, such as the uneven rim, with a breathtaking ultra-high relief.
