This new series of collector coins is devoted to the magic lunisolar calendar. This distinctive way of measuring the passage of time was well known and used in various cultures beginning from the ancient Hellenic or Babylonian calendars through the Hebrew, Buddhist, Hindu ones, ending on the traditional Asian calendars such as the Chinese or Japanese ones. All of them indicate both the time of the solar year and the moon phase.

Each coin depicts the exact position of the Sun on the horizon in each month, thus with subtle differences in placement of the stone. A zircon not only refers to the colour of the natural stone assigned to each month, but also to its special properties.
The bottom part of each coin is decorated with roots, the symbol of Earth under the influence of the solar radiation. They depict intensifications of changes through all of the seasons, beginning from an early spring in March and ending on a stark winter in January.
Each coin is additionally lavishly decorated with the symbols and graphics of the zodiac signs.
The talismans are exceptional gifts, not only for collectors.
