The third coin in the series features The Hydra. A further two coins will be released to add to this series featuring The Centaur and Medusa.

The story of the Twelve Labours of Hercules is well known all over the world. These were feats that Hercules had to complete over 12 years as a penance – feats considered so difficult that they seemed impossible. The second labour of Hercules was to kill the Lernean Hydra, a monstrous nine-headed serpent who terrorised the local countryside and attacked with poisonous venom. This monster was not easily defeated as one of the nine heads was immortal and therefore indestructible. The Hydra also had assistance from a huge crab which would bite Hercules’ foot. After removing and destroying the eight mortal heads by sealing the neck to prevent replacement heads growing, Hercules cut off the ninth head and buried it in the ground covered with a heavy rock.

The image on the coin shows Hercules fighting the Hydra with the crab also shown attacking Hercules with the high relief and antique finish on the coining really showing how monstrous the Hydra was.
