Legend has it that the Gordian Knot was a puzzle so difficult that many tried to unravel it, and none succeeded. The story goes that whomever could untie the mystical knot would rule over all of Asia. The knot stayed tied tightly until the arrival of Alexander the Great... who cheated on the legend by cutting the knot with his sword before going on to conquer much of the known world!
Struck from 2oz of 99.9% pure silver, each coin features a high relief Gordian Knot set against an ouroboros dragon, biting its own tail - yet another symbol of the Gordian Knot tale.

Mintage just 500.
