The 2021 Isle of Man 3 oz Silver Cernunnos Horned God coin is stunning evidence of the kind of ultra-high relief design that the CIT’s smartminting® is capable of. This is the image of Cernunnos, the pagan forest god of the Celts. He is an imposing figure that has a human torso, big antlers, and stag’s feet. Cernunnos looks breathtaking in .999 fine silver with an antique finish. 

 

Key features:

  • Made of 3 Troys ounce of .999 fine silver
  • Antique Finish
  • Face value of ‘5 Pounds’ backed by the Isle of Man
  • Very limited mintage of 999
  • Obverse side has the image of Queen Elizabeth in the middle of a coin shaped disc on a Celtic cross. Around her image, at the top is  ‘QUEEN ELIZABETH II ISLE OF MAN 2021’. At the bottom is ‘5 Pounds’.
  • The reverse has the image of Cernunnos, the horned god of the Celts

 

On the obverse side of this coin is the image of Queen Elizabeth II. She is at the center of a Celtic Cross. Arcing above her head is  ‘QUEEN ELIZABETH II ISLE OF MAN 2021’. At the bottom is ‘5 POUNDS’. The background of the queen’s design as well as the whole cross has a kind of cracked look that makes it look like granite.

 

The reverse of this coin is an intense rendering of Cernunnos, the pagan forest god of the Celts. The early Christians were horrified by his image in paintings they saw during the Gallo Roman period. They thought it was the image of the devil himself since some of the earlier artists had depicted Satan with horns similar to Cernunnos. Therefore, they believed the Celtics were ‘devil worshippers’. Cernunnos is shown here in a kind of crouching stance. On one hand, he holds a ‘torque’, a symbol of wealth and power’. With his other hand, he seems to be holding back a snake. Above his head are ‘CERNUNNOS’ and ‘HORNED GOD’. The whole design has him against a CELTIC CROSS’. The ultra-high detail shows off his bulging muscles while the antique finish gives it an almost 3D effect.

 

The 2021 Isle of Man 3 oz Silver Cernunnos Horned God would look great in your collection and is a great gift idea for anyone who likes Celtic history or appreciates beautiful coin art. Get yours today.
