Obverse

Depicts a bull facing right below the Zodiac sign left of the sun (5 rays).

Taurus (Latin for "the Bull") is the second astrological sign in the present Zodiac. It spans the 30–60th degree of the Zodiac. The Sun is in the sign of Taurus from about April 20 until about May 21 (Western astrology). People born between these dates, depending on which system of astrology they subscribe to, may be called Taureans. Taurus was the first sign of the zodiac established among the ancient Mesopotamians – who knew it as the Bull of Heaven – because it was the constellation through which the sun rose on the vernal equinox at that time.
