The strength of Hercules is unquestioned. His legend grows with each tale of resilience, power and durability.

The same can be said about copper — which makes Hercules on this 5 oz copper round an unbeatable combination. Each contains .999 fine copper and measures 63mm in diameter.

A side profile of Hercules wearing the Nemean Lion’s hide as armor is the obverse design. He clutches his trusty wooden club with his right hand.

12 LABORS OF HERCULES is inscribed at the center of the reverse. It’s surrounded by a decorative vine and additional inscriptions of FIVE TROY, CMXCIX — or .999 in roman numerals — and FINE COPPER.

These Hercules 5 oz Copper rounds will be available through Sept. 12, 2015. Individual Labor rounds highlighting each of Hercules’ triumphs will be issued once per month on the 12th until the series is complete.

The Labor rounds will only be available for purchase for one month — through the 12th of the following month when the next Labor piece will be release. Upon conclusion of sales for each round, a mintage will be published.

12 Labors of Hercules

Driven crazy by Hera, Hercules slew his family — only regretful after recovering his sanity. King Thespius purified the son of Zeus, but to atone for his crimes, he was sent to serve King Eurystheus.

Eurystheus ordered Hercules to execute 10 Labors, which were a series of tasks carried out as penance for his actions. Hercules successfully completed all 10, but because his nephew helped with one and he planned to accept payment for another, Eurystheus forced Hercules to finish two more Labors alone.

Hercules’ Labors adhere to the traditional order of the Bibliotheca:

  1. Nemean Lion – Sept. 12, 2014
  2. Lernaean Hydra – Oct. 12, 2014;
  3. Ceryneian Hind – Nov. 12, 2014;
  4. Erymanthian Boar – Dec. 12, 2014;
  5. Augean Stables – Jan. 12, 2015;
  6. Stymphalian Birds – Feb. 12, 2015;
  7. Cretan Bull – March 12, 2015;
  8. Mares of Diomedes – April 12, 2015;
  9. Girdle of Hippolyta – May 12, 2015;
  10. Cattle of Geryon – June 12, 2015;
  11. Apples of Hesperides – July 12, 2015;
  12. Cerberus – Aug. 12, 2015
