Universal Gods

Dagda is another ancient god to whom the silver coin from the Czech Mint's thematic cycle pays tribute.

The extraordinary significance of
the supreme god of the ancient Celts is evidenced by the sacred reverence with which his followers titled him. The name Dagda itself means "good god" in the ancient Irish language, but he was also known as the father of all, lord of all knowledge or lord of the four elements. His power was multiplied by magical objects - a club that took and gave life, a harp that changed the seasons, and a cauldron that provided inexhaustible abundance. Dagda was a wise wizard, a master of all crafts and a strong warrior, but he was also a great eater, a passionate lover and a fierce baker. He was the protector of the druids and the patron saint of poets, but he was loved by all ordinary people who, like their god, wished for a happy peacefull life full of love and prosperity...

The reverse side of the coin, which is the work of the medal maker
Mgr. Petr Horák, presents Dagda in the form of a burly man with a cloak and riding boots. He has his magical objects at hand - a war club, which is a symbol of rebirth, and a bottomless cauldron. Dagda's power over the four elements is expressed by the ancient geometric symbols of fire, water, earth and air. The ornaments that complete the reverse relief are reminiscent of Celtic knots and volutes. The decorative Celtic motifs are also found on the obverse side of the coin, where they are supplemented with ornaments of Greek, Norse, Slavic and Egyptian origin - the obverse side is common to the entire year of the divine coins. As the coins of the Czech Mint are issued with the license of a foreign issuer, which is the island of Niue, the obverse side bears its necessary elements - the nominal value of 10 DOLLARS (NZD), the name and portrait of Queen Elizabeth II and the year of issue 2022.

The great gods of the world are immortalised on large coins - each weighing
five troy ounces.
