Why purchase this perfectly struck 1 oz. silver ultra high relief 2021 Athenian Owl antiqued coin?

The second release of the Coin Invest Trust (CIT) Numismatic Icons Series is focused on the Athenian Owl tetradrachm of ancient Greece. Minted for nearly five centuries, from approximately 510-40 BC, and affectionately known as the "little owl," the coin is considered to be one of the most influential in numismatic history.

  • This 2021 Athenian Owl coin contains 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver.
  • The coin was struck at the Mayer Mint using CIT's groundbreaking smartminting technique.
  • The coin features a handsome antiqued finish, paired with a dramatic ultra high relief strike.
  • Replicating the style of the original ancient tetradrachm, the coin is minted with an uneven edge, measuring approximately 33 mm in diameter.
  • The coin's entire 999 piece mintage is sold out at the Mint.

Gorgeously Sculptured Athenian Owl Design

Obverse: A right facing effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is located on the obverse. Inscriptions include "ELIZABETH II," "5 DOLLARS," "COOK ISLANDS" and "2021." The classically styled royal portrait was designed by prolific British sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998.

Reverse: A meticulously detailed Athenian Owl is depicted on the reverse. Although the appearance of the owl is modernized from the Greek tetradrachm, the creature's pose, as well as the inclusion of a crescent moon and olive branch overhead, accurately emulate the design of the ancient coin. The inscription is also modeled after the ancient coin, stating simply "CI" (Cook Islands).

Silver Coin was received by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) for review with thirty days of release, and deemed to be in Mint State 70 condition for its flawless strike and pristine surfaces.
