Hygieia, known from both Greek and Roman mythology, was the daughter of the God of Medicine and herself was worshipped as the goddess of health, cleanliness and hygiene... As you might imagine, her name is the source of the modern English word "hygiene".
This MASSIVE copper coin features a concave high relief minted version of the beautiful goddess, cradling the snake that she was so often depicted with in Ancient sculpture. In many ways a throwback to the commemorative medallions of the Victorian-era, this Hygieia is High Relief on both sides and is HUGE. Measuring 60mm in diameter, it is also a ridiculous 10mm thick! Its incredibly satisfying! Limited edition just 2020 pieces worldwide and absurd value for its size and quality at less than $100!
