Fortuna
Fortuna was the goddess of fortune and the personification of luck in Roman religion. Fortuna is often depicted with a gubernaculum (ship's rudder), a ball or Rota Fortunae (wheel of fortune) and a cornucopia (horn of plenty). She might bring good or bad luck: she could be represented as veiled and blind, as in modern depictions of Lady Justice, except that Fortuna does not hold a balance. Fortuna came to represent life's capriciousness. She was also a goddess of fate: as Atrox Fortuna, she claimed the young lives of the princeps Augustus' grandsons Gaius and Lucius, prospective heirs to the Empire. (In antiquity she was also known as Automatia). Fortuna's father was said to be Jupiter and like him, she could also be bountiful (Copia). As Annonaria she protected grain supplies. June 11 was sacred to her: on June 24 she was given cult at the festival of Fors Fortuna.

 
Design

The reverse of the coin is shaped like an ancient cart wheel. In the centre a replica of a gold Roman coin Aureus with Fortuna, with the inscriptions: “AUGUST” and “FORTUNA”. All around the reverse, the inscriptions: “WHEEL OF FORTUNE”. The obverse of the coin features the Coat of Arms of the Republic of Macedonia and the inscriptions: “Република Македониjа” – the issuing country, “10 Denars” – the face value, “11,80G” – the weight of the coin, “2018” – the year of issue and “AG 999,9” – the fineness of the Silver.
