The Banshee is the fifth and last design in Provident’s Celtic Lore series. Irish mythology tells of a fairy-like creature who acts as a foreteller of death. The Banshee takes the form of either a young woman with flowing red hair or an old woman with fiery eyes wearing a hooded cloak. A banshee does not cause death, but rather her wailing is believed to be an omen of death. The origins of the Banshee can be traced back to the 8th century when women sang sorrowful songs to lament recent deaths. They were sometimes compensated with alcohol, for which they were punished by being doomed to roam the earth as Banshees.
The shared reverse in the Celtic Lore series features a celtic knot as the main focus, with additional celtic artwork around the rim. Two wolves facing inward are positioned on either side. “CELTIC LORE,” along with the weight and purity, are inscribed.
The Celtic Lore series features five designs based on the folklore, myths, and legends of the Celts. Each round showcases the original artwork of world-renowned artist and illustrator Howard David Johnson, along with the work of master sculptor Luigi Badia. These limited edition silver bullion rounds were struck at the Osborne Mint, in partnership with Anonymous Mint.
Each Banshee round is edge-numbered and comes with a certificate of authenticity. Rounds are protected inside of an Air-Tite capsule and a Provident-branded coin box.
