The obverse side of 10 oz Fortuna Gold Bars includes the image of Lady Fortuna. The Roman goddess of fortune, she was worshipped in Roman religion too as a symbol of luck. Her figure is featured here in left-profile relief with a crown wreath on her head and blindfold over her eyes. The cornucopia featured on her figure winds down to the bottom of the design where her open hands collect a wealth of coins falling from the horn.
Fortuna took many forms in Roman society. Though she was best known as a goddess, her powers ranged from a focus on fortune to concepts of fate and luck. It is said that she could bring both good and bad luck to her worshippers.
