Lady Bugs have been symbols of luck for over 1000 years!
Legend says that the lady bug first gained its “Lucky” status when it kept landing on a man’s neck that was sentenced to be executed by the French guillotine. The man proclaimed his innocence and the Lady Bug kept landing on his neck to distract the executioner. It was seen as a divine intervention and spared the man’s life and later he was proven innocent.
The Lady Bug’s legend grew as European farmers prayed for help from pesky insects and Lady Bugs arrived shortly after. They were named after Virgin Mary and have since been a blessing for generations! Many tales about their famous spots have arisen as a way to tell their age or how many years of good luck you will have.
This wonderful 1oz silver Proof will surely be a good luck token for you! Never before has a Lady Bug been brought onto a coin in such a beautiful way.
Ultra high relief in combination with a sophisticated colouring technique make this coin come alive. It looks like it will take off from the coin at any moment. The colourful Lady Bug is surrounded by green four-leaf clovers which makes this coin even more lucky!
