The Hydra, one of the most intriguing monsters of Greek mythology - chop off its head, and two more will grow in its place! As one of Hercules' Twelve Labours, the Hydra's head problem was solved by the demi-god. The solution? His sidekick, Ioalaus cauterised the neck wound each time Hercules cut off a head!

A fine addition to the realms of Ultra High Relief silver coins, this 2019 issue features Hercules in his famous lion's pelt cloak, battling the Hydra. Struck from two ounces of 99.9% pure silver, each UHR collectable also features selective 24-carat gold plating.

Mintage just 500 pieces.
