This amazing coin is the unique project inspired by Slavic folklore and portraits Skarbek, the Spirit of the Coalmine. The spirit is holding a lamp, which is highlighted by a piece of inset yellow amber. It is a pretty neat piece of work, however, with the spirit perfectly placed within its habitat. There’s a lot of fine detail all over and the charcoal application at the bottom enhances the sense that this is a coal mine, rather than, for example, a gold mine. It also helps with the sense of depth, essentially forming a foreground layer. It isn’t one of the more widely known myths and it’s great to see something original like this for a change.

In Slavic beliefs, Skarbek is an underworld-dwelling spirit who guards the natural resources and protects treasures hidden in the earth. He is a caring spirit of a coalmine, sympathetic to hardworking and honest people, but often vindictive towards the lazy and stingy ones. Skarbek gives the miners a helping hand when they get lost in the underground corridors
