Description

Hercules became an icon of Greek mythology through tales of incredible strength and adventure.

From slaying lions to capturing three-headed beasts, some of his greatest feats came to pass during the Twelve Labors — which are now being celebrated by the 12 Labors of Hercules series

This powerful new collection will consist of 28 releases including the BU silver and copper 5 oz Hercules (2), the 12 labors in both silver and copper bullion (24), the 5 oz silver Hercules proof and the 1 oz silver proof of the same design (2).

The introductory piece is this 12 Labors of Hercules 5 oz Silver round. Each 5 oz round measures 63mm in diameter and contains .999 fine silver.

The obverse features a left-facing profile of Hercules wearing the Nemean Lion’s hide as armor on his head. The detailed design also shows the mythological demigod clutching his famous club.

The reverse is inscribed with THE 12 LABORS OF HERCULES at the center. A decorative vine wraps around the text. FIVE TROY OZ, CMXCIX — or .999 in roman numerals — and FINE SILVER are also included.
