The obverse of the coin depicts the head of mythological hero Hercules – who was born in Thebes, famous for his strength and courage and gatekeeper of the home of the gods at Mount Olympus after his death. The reverse features a “thyrsus” – a sacred staff of ancient Greece topped with a pinecone and carried by gods and satyrs.
