"Famous Love Stories" is a collector coin's series that features the lovers whose feelings were so strong to have completely determined their actions, while being so timeless and universal to be remembered forever. On the obverse in the center part of the coin is the likeness of Anteros, designed based on the Piccadilly Circus memorial in London, also known as the Angel of Christian Charity. Anteros, the younger brother of Eros, was the god of requited and fulfilled love, but also the avenger of scorned and unrequited love. Along the edge, at the bottom is the inscription: "Niue Island", the face value and year of issue. The reverse has a portrait of Paris and Helen, facing each other. Paris is wearing a helmet of the ancient, Greek warrior. On the helmet, an ornament presenting an army, a symbol of the Trojan War. The upper part of the helmet takes the shape of the Trojan Horse. On the edge of the coin is a repeating "Paris · Helen" separated by the image of a heart. Each coin comes encapsulated and with a Certificate of Authenticity from the Mint of Poland.
