Why purchase this 2021 Athenian Owl 1 oz. antiqued silver ultra high relief coin?
This magnificent antiqued silver coin dedicated to the Athenian Owl is the second release of the Coin Invest Trust (CIT) Numismatic Icons Series. The coin's design is inspired by one of the most influential coins in numismatic history, the Athenian Owl tetradrachm, which was minted in ancient Greece for nearly five centuries.
Exceptional Athenian Owl Design
Obverse: The obverse is adorned with a crowned, right facing effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The portrait is encircled by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "5 DOLLARS," "COOK ISLANDS" and the date of issue "2021." This rendition of the Queen was created in 1998 by acclaimed British sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley.
Reverse: The reverse features a magnificently sculptural, modernized interpretation of the Athenian Owl. Like the ancient coin, a crescent moon and sprig of olive hover above the wise creature's back. The understated vertical inscription is also borrowed from the tetradrachm; in the location where the ancient coin held a three character abbreviation for "of the Athenians," this coin is cleverly inscribed with "CI," which represents Cook Islands.

Silver Antiqued $5 Coin is presented in Brilliant Uncirculated (GEM BU) condition, featuring an outstanding strike, gorgeously finished surfaces and fabulous eye appeal.
