Why add this 2018 Niue $2 Athenian Owl 1 oz. Silver GEM BU coin to your collection?

This stunning silver bullion coin featuring the image of the Athenian Owl replicates the design of one of the most recognizable coins of ancient Greece, the Athenian Owl Tetradrachm. The ancient coin, struck from c. 510 BC until c. 42 BC, was readily accepted throughout Greece, trusted by merchants for its consistent silver purity. This 2018 dated coin commemorating the importance of the ancient Greek tetradrachm measures 39 mm in diameter with a thickness of 2.3 mm, struck by the New Zealand Mint from 1 full Troy oz. of .999 fine silver.

Classic Athenian Owl Design of Ancient Greece

The reverse depicts a beautifully rendered Athenian Owl perched on a branch, head facing forward, with a crescent moon and olive sprig in the background. The hammered background contains the inscription of the original Greek Tetradrachm, "???" (of the Athenians), along with "1 oz. 999 FINE SILVER."

The obverse depicts the likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, as sculpted by artist Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998. Inscribed "ELIZABETH II," "NIUE," "TWO DOLLARS" and "2018".

Uniquely Stackable GEM Brilliant Uncirculated Coin

This ungraded 2018 Niue 1 oz. Silver Athenian Owl exhibits the strike and surface characteristics of a coin graded 65 or higher on the Sheldon Scale and features a unique textured border that interlocks for convenient stacking.
