The zodiac has a long, rich history that dates back to Hellenic and Babylonian civilizations, when astrology and astronomy were virtually inseparable. Today, its 12 signs entertain, intrigue or inspire millions of people worldwide, who find hope or guidance in the cyclical alignment of the stars and planets! The stars align in the 2017 Zodiac series, which features sparkling Swarovski® crystal embellishments within a coloured rendition of the zodiac.

The reverse design by Pandora Young features an eye-catching combination of colour and engraving that results in a beautifully artistic rendition of the zodiac. Like the stars and planets in the sky, a clear Swarovski® crystal embellishment is in alignment with the traditional glyph of the Roman figure “II” for “2” or “twins,” which is the zodiac symbol for Gemini (May 21–June 20). At the centre is a larger Swarovski® crystal embellishment; its orange colour also represents those born under the Air sign known for energy, cleverness, adaptability and wit. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
