This unique coin design pays tribute to the mythological story of Perseus, who was a Greek hero and a son of Zeus. To save Andromeda from a fierce sea monster, Perseus severed Medusas head. Because he was also sired by Zeus, Perseus is both the great-grandfather and half-brother to Hercules.
On the obverse of the 2021 1 oz Antique Gibraltar Silver Medusas Head Coin is the Gibraltar Coat of Arms. Three nations of the United Kingdom are represented through the symbolism on this Coat of Arms: Scotland, Ireland, and England. The Coat of Arms features images of a lion in a crown and a unicorn. The obverse also shows the coins purity, weight, and value, along with its release year and the place of origin, GIBRALTAR.
The reverse of the 2021 1 oz Antique Gibraltar Silver Medusas Head Coin shows an image of the statue of Perseus after slaying Medusa. In the image, he holds up Medusas head high in the air. The portrait of the sculptor, Benvenuto Cellini, sits in the background of the coin behind Perseus. This statue of Perseus can be seen in real life in Italy at the Piazza della Signoria. The reverse also has the inscription MEDUSAS HEAD on the top right.
