the South Dakota 10 Goldback Denomination, which introduces us to the Virtue of Harmonia, or Harmony. Accompanied by the profound phrase "Live in Harmony," Harmonia graces this denomination, appearing as a modern interpretation of the Greco-Roman goddess Artemis.
In this portrayal, Harmonia embodies the virtues of the hunt, the wilderness, fertility, and the essence of young women. She stands poised, holding a drawn bow with an arrow on the string, ready to be released. Behind her, a crescent moon rises against a cloudy sky, symbolizing healing and the light that emerges from darkness.
Surrounding her are depictions of the diverse wildlife that makes South Dakota a renowned hunting destination in the United States, including Canada geese, pronghorn antelope, mule deer antler sheds, and ring-necked pheasants. These creatures are symbols of ecological balance, reminding us of the harmonious relationship between humans and nature.
This Virtue stands as a beacon of ecological balance, highlighting the natural interplay between the wilderness and the hunt. It underscores the importance of responsible wildlife conservation and harvesting practices to maintain a healthy ecosystem, mirroring South Dakota's commitment to striking this equilibrium in its policies and practices.
Accompanying Harmonia is a hunting dog adorned with a collar of laurel leaves, symbolizing the synergy between purpose and obedience. The laurel leaves represent victory and success through dedication and direction.
The South Dakota 10 Goldback Denomination encapsulates the beauty of nature, the vitality of harmony, and the profound symbolism of Virtue. These designs transcend mere currency; they are a testament to the intricate dance between humanity and the environment, the dedication and focus required for success, and the enduring pursuit of harmony in all aspects of life.
