What is your sign?
For those that come here often, you know that when we have a special series, it is common for us to turn to our friend and celebrated designer Chris Mackey. When we decided that we would like to do our very own Zodiac series, we knew that his intricate designs and incredible detail would make this a special collection.
Libra is the second in the Zodiac series. Each of these unique coins are trackable at Geocaching.com with a unique icon. They measure approximately 1.75 inches in diameter.
Please note: The tracking code is located on the side of this coin.
Here are some design notes from Chris Mackey: I was surprised to learn that while often thought of as the scales, the personification of the Libra is the griffon. The scales do not indicate balance the way of right and wrong, but rather a perfect split between calmness and harmony with violence and action. Life and death, peace and destruction, fairness balanced with justice, it just goes on and on. The color for Libra is Chrysolite (Peridot in modern days), a cool green gem, slightly lighter in color than an emerald. In the Triplicity, the day ruler of Libra is Saturn, the night is Mercury and the participant is Jupiter. Libra is the time of balance when the hours of day and night match each other (the fall equinox), a time of righteousness and auspicious beginnings.
