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 Taurus below, and the inscriptions for "Taurus" 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 bull (the symbol of Taurus) with an inset of red zircon crystal eyes. Surrounding the bull is a geometric ornament of Greek columns.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20), the second Sign of the Zodiac, is all about reward. Unlike the Aries’ love of the game, Taurus' love the rewards of the game. Think physical pleasures and material goods, for those born under this sign revel in delicious excess. They are also a tactile lot, enjoying a tender, even sensual, touch. Taureans adore comfort and like being surrounded by pleasing, soothing things. Along these lines, they also favor a good meal and a fine wine. The good life in all its guises, whether it's the arts or art of their own making (yes, these folks are artistic as well), is heaven on Earth to the Taurean-born. Each coin comes encapsulated and with a Certificate of Authenticity from the Mint of Poland.
