The Amazons. The legendary warrior women believed to live in various regions around the Black Sea, the Caucasus Mountains, and parts of Asia Minor. Highly skilled in archery, horseback riding, and combat, these maidens honed their weapons in a valiant effort to protect their lands.
As the embodiment of female power, the flower of the wild rose hip on the obverse symbolizes the Amazons courage and strength. Their adventurous lives inspire us to forge our own path — unyielding, unapologetic, and free.
