Tokelau is delighted to announce the release of the next two coins in its Creatures of Myth and Legend Series. Taking as its inspiration the Chinese Lunar calendar, the series features animals related to the lunar year in its designs. As 2015 will be the Year of the Goat, the designs depict mythical goats – in this case Aries and Capricornus.
Aries, the Ram, is a constellation of stars visible from earth that appear in what the ancient Greeks thought to be the shape of a ram’s head. The mythology of Aries comes from the story of Jason and the Argonauts, whose main quest was to find the golden fleece of Aries the Ram in order to prove himself to be the rightful king of Iolcos in Thessaly. The magical ram is said to have carried off the children of Nephele to keep them safe from their evil stepmother.

Aries (♈) /ˈɛəriːz/ (meaning "ram") is the first astrological sign in the Zodiac, spanning the first 30 degrees of celestial longitude (0°≤ λ <30º). Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun transits this sign between March 21 and April 21 each year. This time duration is exactly the first month of Solar Hejri calendar (Farvardin). Under the sidereal zodiac, the sun currently transits Aries from 15 April to 15 May (approximately). The symbol of the ram is based on the Chrysomallus, the flying ram that provided the Golden Fleece.
According to the Tropical system of astrology, the Sun enters the sign of Aries when it reaches the northern vernal equinox, which occurs around March 21. Due to the fact that the Earth takes approximately 365.25 days to go around the Sun, the precise time of the equinox is not the same each year, and generally will occur about 6 hours later each year, with a jump of a day (backwards) on leap years. Since 1900 the vernal equinox date ranged from March 20 at 08h (2000) to March 21 at 19h (1903) (all times UTC).
