ZODIAC MONSTER SERIES: THE 2017 TAURUS ZODIAC 1/10 OZ SILVER COIN BY NUBEX – PRODUCT BACKGROUND
Inspired by gaming and fantasy elements, the well known Zodiac symbols have been transformed beyond recognition, offering a fresh yet twisted take on a familiar coin theme.
As with all our Zodiac Monsters coins, each Zodiac symbol has its own backstory to explain how these creatures came to be.
The story of the Taurus Zodiac Monster begins with a boy named Haka and his pet buffalo, aptly named Taurus. After an evening out, they accidentally wandered off into Sagi lands, who are known to be as a territorial tribe. In the midst of escaping from the chasing enemy tribe, Taurus decides to save Haka by throwing him off his back, flipping him over to the other side of the bridge. As Taurus is trying to cross it to reach Haka, he was shot by enemy arrows and fell into the gorge below. Unbeknownst to them, Taurus survived the encounter, as the pits below actually served as a gateway into the underworld. Now imbued with dark powers and a new monstrous form, the Taurus monster bides his time before launching his revenge against the Sagi tribe.
