King Eurystheus had a daughter who desired the girdle – or belt – of Hippolyta. To appease his daughter, Eurystheus sent Hercules to retrieve the belt from the queen of the Amazons. Hercules, joined by his companions, began the journey to Themiscyra, where Hippolyta resided.
While traveling, two of Hercules’ comrades were killed by the sons of Minos. In an act of vengeance, Hercules killed two of Minos’ sons and threatened further violence. To placate the demigod, two grandsons of Minos were given to Hercules to replace his loss. Impressed by what had transpired, Hippolyta planned to give her belt to Hercules, but Hera – an enemy of Hercules – tricked Hercules into thinking Hippolyta desired war. Hercules killed Hippolyta and took her Girdle back to Eurystheus, which completed his ninth labor.
The reverse design captures the imagery of Hercules’ ninth labor, showing Hippolyta dressed in her girdle, clutching a spear in her left hand. “GIRDLE OF HIPPOLYTA” and “IX” are inscribed.
Hercules’ stoic profile features on the obverse; his head slightly bowed, wearing the skin of the Nemean Lion. He holds a wooden club in his right hand. “1 oz CMXCIX FINE SILVER” is inscribed.
An ideal addition to any Silver Bullion assortment, and a must-have for all 12 Labors of Hercules collections, 1 oz Girdle rounds were available for purchase from May 12 through June 12, 2015. Don’t forget to purchase a 39mm Air-Tite plastic capsule to protect your investment.
