The story of Jason and the Argonauts is one of the most famous and enduring tales in Greek mythology. The gist of the story tells how Jason set sail in his ship the Argo manned by the greatest heroes of his time to go on a quest to find the Golden Fleece. After an exhausting expedition beset by giants and monsters, Jason and the Argonauts successfully retrieved the Golden Fleece. While a myth, many scientists believe the quest was inspired by an actual voyage made by the real Jason sometime between 3,300 and 3,500 years ago when he traveled from Greece to a kingdom near the Black Sea renowned for using sheepskins to collect gold grains and flakes from mountain streams. Whether it be fact or fiction, the story has remained popular for thousands of years and is now the basis of a new coin series called the Argonauts that illustrates the epic saga in detail!

Jason And His Boyhood Guardian And Mentor

Here you can get the first release in the series that shows Jason and Chiron, the half-man, half-horse centaur. The oldest and wisest of all centaurs, Chiron was Jason’s guardian and mentor who oversaw his education and taught him about hunting, warfare, music, and medicine. Not only is Jason depicted on the coin wearing the Golden Fleece, but the garment has been beautifully gilded in gold. The bright amber color of the selective gold gilding contrasts brilliantly with the coin’s unique antique finish, a feature that skillfully adds incredible depth and detail.
