In Greek mythology, Medusa (/mɪˈdjuːzə, -sə/; Μέδουσα "guardian, protectress") was a monster, a Gorgon, generally described as a winged human female with living venomous snakes in place of hair. Those who gazed upon her face would turn to stone. Most sources describe her as the daughter of Phorcys and Ceto, though the author Hyginus makes her the daughter of Gorgon and Ceto. According to Hesiod and Aeschylus, she lived and died on an island named Sarpedon, somewhere near Cisthene. The 2nd-century BCE novelist Dionysios Skytobrachion puts her somewhere in Libya, where Herodotus had said the Berbers originated her myth, as part of their religion.
The reverse of the coin depicts the highly intricate detailed of Medusa head design with Diamond inserted in the eyes of the coin. The obverse of the coin depicts the Cameroon Coat of Arms and the inscriptions: “ REPUBLIQUE DE CAMEROON” – the issue country, “2019” – the year of issue, “3 oz Ag 999” – the weight of the coin and the fineness of the Silver and “3000 Francs” – the face value.
