This unique Silver coin, the first in the Perth Mint's new Gods of Olympus series, features a beautifully detailed image of a bearded Zeus rising up into a stormy sky wielding his thunderbolt and scepter with an eagle flying above his shoulder.
In addition to the interesting design, these coins have a limited mintage of just 1,500 coins, adding even more collectibility to this .999 fine Silver coin!
To capture the depth and detail of this unique design, the coin is struck in high relief to a rimless format and features an antique finish. ZEUS and the Perth Mint's 'P' mintmark are incorporated into the obverse design. The Ian Rank-Broadley likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination are shown on the obverse. Each 2 oz Silver coin comes housed in a prestigious round wooden display case and a numbered certificate of authenticity.
In ancient Greek mythology, Zeus was worshipped as the supreme ruler of Mount Olympus and the Pantheon of gods that lived there. He was the god of the sky and weather, law, justice, morals and fate, and the spiritual leader of both gods and men. Zeus seized control from the Titans and divided the universe between his siblings: Zeus took control of the heavens while Poseidon controlled the sea and Hades ruled the underworld.
