Centaurs were mythological beasts with the upper body of a human and the lower body of a horse. There are many theories behind the origin of centaurs in human mythology, including the concept that they were born of Ixion and Nephele. However, many modern scholars believe the idea of a centaur came from ancient humans with no prior contact with horses coming into contact with horse-riding civilizations.
On the reverse of the 2018 2 oz Reverse Proof Solomon Islands Silver Legends and Myths Centaur Coin is the image of a strong, powerful centaur wielding a giant battle axe in his right hand. The coins feature engravings of the represented beast and the name of the series.
The obverse of the Solomon Islands Silver Legends and Myths Centaur Coins feature the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is featured here in a right-profile design that serves as the fourth-generation depiction of the Queen during her long reign. It was originally created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley for the Royal Mint to use on British coinage, and it continues in use today on commonwealth coinage.
