The statue of Perseus holding up the severed head of Medusa is seen on the reverse of the 2021 1 oz Proof Silver Gibraltar Medusa’s Head Coin. Behind Perseus is the portrait of the sculptor, Benvenuto Cellini. This sculpture is known to be one of Cellini’s most famous pieces of artwork and can be viewed in real life in Italy at the Piazza della Signoria.
The imagery of this coin design pays tribute to the story of Perseus, a Greek mythological hero who slew monsters. To save Andromeda from a sea monster, Perseus severed the head of Medusa. Perseus is also known for being a son of Zeus, meaning he is both the half-brother and great-grandfather to Hercules, since they were both sired by Zeus.
