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. POSEIDON 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, Poseidon was worshipped as the God of the Sea. Adept at gathering clouds and creating violent storms, Poseidon was responsible for countless shipwrecks and the drowning of many souls, yet he also held the power to grant a ship a successful voyage, and to save those in danger. He is also often referred to as the ‘earth-shaker’ due to his penchant for causing earthquakes.
