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.
Sagittarius is the fourth 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: Sagittarius (the archer) is the embodiment of the mortal coil of Chiron the centaur who’s body was flung into the heavens upon his death by poisoning. He was a patron of Botany, Pharmaceuticals, Music and the knowledge of land/earth/soil. His constellation is made up of 23 stars which is pretty complex for an ancient constellation. His father Apollo is represented by the sunburst pattern behind him and overlayed by the ancient symbol of fire which was his gift to humankind. His symbol is the drawn arrow and the trifecta is the Sun as day ruler, Jupiter as night ruler and Saturn as participant.
