Your coin's reverse features a gorgeous zodiac wheel enhanced with metallic colour, which adds an otherworldly shimmer that instantly draws the eye. The reverse design dazzles and captivates in any light, but there's a hidden layer that only reveals itself when you view your coin under a blacklight (included) - that's when the 12 zodiac constellations appear and glow in the night sky.Enhanced with metallic colour, your coin's reverse features a zodiac wheel designed by artist Jori van der Linde. This celestial circle is divided into 12 30-degree sections that house each of the 12 signs of the zodiac; these are arranged in a counter-clockwise direction, as indicated by the roman numerals on the outer ring: Aries ("I"), Taurus ("II"), Gemini ("III"), Cancer ("IV"), Leo ("V"), Virgo ("VI"), Libra ("VII"), Scorpio ("VIII"), Sagittarius ("IX"), Capricorn ("X"), Aquarius ("XI") and Pisces ("XII"). Each zodiac sign is paired with its corresponding glyph, and together, these 12 glyphs form an inner ring that surrounds the combined sun and moon motif at the centre of the wheel. When viewed under a black light, the 12 zodiac constellations appear in the inner ring.
The obverse features a field pattern and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. Jori van der Linde, Artist.
The number of elements incorporated into this design made it a really fun yet challenging project! The roman numerals on the outer ring are associated with the astrological houses-they run in a counter-clockwise direction in order to match up with the symbols in the next two rings. The zodiac illustrations proved to be some of the more natural, easy elements to draw, while the technical layout was much more challenging to complete. It seemed only fitting to have the sun and moon as the central motifs, with all the other zodiac elements rotating around them.
