Mythical Creatures – 2013 Unicorn Silver Proof Coin 1oz
The second of the five release from the charming Mythical Creatures series showcases the enchanted unicorn.
The unicorn is a mythical creature of European folklore that resembles a white horse with distinguishing goat-like features.

It is believed that the horn of a unicorn possesses both magical and medicinal properties. As a symbol of purity, grace, wisdom and power, the enchanted beast was well represented in art and heraldry throughout the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.
