Year of Jupiter: "
The Calendar Medal 2022 celebrates the year of Jupiter, not only the largest planet in our solar system but also the king of the Ancient Roman gods. Fulfilling a role similar to that of his Greek equivalent, Zeus, Jupiter was praised for his fatherliness and kindness.
Man of many faces
Despite the sheer magnitude of his power, he was not distant and did not restrict himself to his heavenly domain. As a man in the prime of his life and in top physical condition, he was enterprising and constantly reinvented himself. Transformed into a bull, he abducted Europa, while in the form of a cloud he hid from his jealous wife Juno when he fell in love with the priestess, Io. He reached the imprisoned Danaë by appearing in the form of a shower of gold and seduced Leda in the body of a swan. So, like Jupiter, keep your options open throughout his year – his calendar medal will guide you on your adventure."


Year of Saturn: "Celebrating the year of Saturn, the Calendar Medal 2021 is a convenient and elegant pocket year planner. Carrying a sickle, the roman god Saturn, after whom the planet is named, features on one side of the medal alongside the zodiac signs Capricorn and Aquarius, over which the planet rules. Every national holiday and Sunday in 2021 are shown on the medal’s other side."

"The Calendar Medal 2023 celebrates the year of Mars, who was worshipped in ancient times as the god of war. The son of Jupiter and Juno, Mars was also considered by the ancient Romans to be the father of Romulus and Remus and therefore the father of the founders of Rome itself. For the Sabines, who considered him very versatile, Mars was both the god of prophecy and of the spring, which is why the month of March is named after him.

Despite his bellicose nature, Mars also had a peaceful side, as shown by his love for the goddess Venus with whom he fathered Cupid. Venus is shown embracing the armed Mars on one side of the medal, her mouth close to his and her hands wrapped around his neck. The other side of the medal shows the dates of all the Sundays and public holidays in the year. Available in gold, silver, silver gold-plated and bronze, this elegant pocket year planner will help you be like Mars by being as versatile as you can in 2023. Plan your days accordingly."
