Product Description

Demigods returns! This wonderful silver coin is the third  release in the new and exciting “Demigods” series, dedicated to the legendary Hercules, a Greek hero. The scene depicted on the coin is of Hercules fighting a centaur. At a gathering with his Centaur friends Pholus and Chiron, he had opened a bottle of wine gifted to Pholus by the goddess Dionysus. The scent of the wine drove the wild centaurs, led by Nessus, into a frenzy, and they attacked. Hercules fought them off with poisoned arrows, but one hit Chiron, killing him, while Pholus also fell when he accidentally dropped an arrow on his hoof.

Hercules was married to Megara, the daughter of King Kreo of Thebes, and together they had five children. Unfortunately, the goddess Hera drove Hercules insane in a fit of jealousy and he killed his wife and children.

Driven mad by Hera (queen of the gods), Hercules slew his son, daughter, and wife Megara. After recovering his sanity, Hercules deeply regretted his actions; he was purified by King Thespius, then traveled to Delphi to inquire how he could atone for his actions. Pythia, the Oracle of Delphi, advised him to go to Tiryns and serve his cousin King Eurystheus for twelve years, performing whatever labors Eurystheus might set him; in return, he would be rewarded with immortality. Hercules despaired at this, loathing to serve a man whom he knew to be far inferior to himself, yet fearing to oppose his father Zeus. Eventually, he placed himself at Eurystheus’s disposal.
