In the central part of the coin the image of Pisces surrounded by a circular, geometric ornament, reserved only for this coin, which gives the impression of three-dimensionality.
There are two ruling planets for Pisces – Neptune, the planet of illusion and intuition and Jupiter, the planet of expansion and idealism. People born under this sign are creative, sensitive, gentle and understanding. 
In relationships they are delicate, devoted and protective, which makes them excellent partners. Their lives often become chaotic.
