This sterling Silver coin from Belarus has been oxidized to give it a unique antique look. The design is full of intricate detail that makes it seem as though it has been carefully hand-carved. The obverse of this Silver coin features a circle consisting of all 12 signs of the Zodiac , a stylized version of the sun and moon with the astrological sign of Leo below, and the inscriptions for "Leo" in Latin and in the Belarusian language at the top. At the top center of the obverse is the State Coat of Arms of the Republic of Belarus, while beneath the Zodiac circle is the year of issue and alloy standard. Inscriptions along the rim include “Republic of Belarus” and the face value of 20 roubles.
Featured on the coin's reverse is a stylized lion (the symbol of Leo) with an inset of orange zircon crystal eyes. Surrounding the lion is a geometric ornament.
Leos (July 23 - August 22), the fifth Sign of the Zodiac, are impossible to miss and love being center stage. Making an impression is top priority for Leos, and when you consider their personal magnetism, you see the job is quite easy. Leos are an ambitious lot, and their strength of purpose allows them to accomplish a great deal. The fact that these folks are also creative makes their endeavors fun for them and everyone else. It's quite common to see a Leo on stage or in Hollywood, since these folks never shy away from the limelight. They are also supremely talented and have a flair for the dramatic. Warmth and enthusiasm seems to seep from every Leo pore, making these folks a pleasure to be around. And they do love pleasure! Each coin comes encapsulated and with a Certificate of Authenticity from the Mint of Poland.
