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

One of the most influential coin series ever struck was the Athenian Owl Tetradrachm of ancient Greece, produced for nearly five centuries, from c. 510 BC until c. 42 BC. The coin's imagery honored the patron goddess of Athens, Athena, along with her steadfast companion, now recognized as the Athenian Owl. Inspired by imagery of the ancient coin, this 2018 Athenian Owl bullion coin is struck by the New Zealand Mint from 1 full Troy oz. of .999 fine silver measuring 39 mm in diameter.

Design Replicating the Greek Tetradrachm

Illustrated on the reverse is the Athenian Owl perched on a branch with a crescent moon and olive spray in the background. Inscriptions include "1 oz. 999 FINE SILVER."

As legal tender minted for the island nation of Niue, the obverse features the portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, sculpted by artist Ian Rank-Broadley, surrounded by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "NIUE," "TWO DOLLARS" and "2018."
