5 euro - Capricorn
Series: San Marino - Zodiac
San Marino concludes the issue of coins dedicated to the zodiac signs, which are part of the series started in 2018 with "Aries" and "Taurus". The obverse of the coins shows the sun in the center, with the lunar phases around it. The sun in astrology is the most important planet and it is the central point from which the indications concerning temperament are derived and which confers the features of each sign. Moreover in astrological symbolism the sun corresponds to the ego. The image of the sun is surrounded by three feathers, symbolizing the Republic of San Marino, and by the twelve astrological signs along the perimeter. The reverse of the first coin shows Capricorn, an earth sign and tenth constellation of the zodiac, while on the second coin Aquarius is depicted, an air sign and eleventh constellation of the zodiac. The reverse of the third coin shows Pisces, a water sign and twelfth constellation of the zodiac. The symbol related to each sign, depicted ten times around the perimeter of the coin, with the year of minting at the top complete the reverses of the three coins.
