The 1 oz Athenian Owl Silver Round, the 4th release in GoldSilver’s popular Modern Ancients series, is inspired by one of the most famous coins of antiquity.

Ancient Athenian Owl coin from approx. 465 BCE (for reference only).

The first Athenian Owl coins were minted over 2,400 years ago in the birthplace of democracy and Western civilization: Athens, Greece. An Ancient Athenian Owl coin is pictured on the right for reference.

The ancient Athenians revered the owl as a symbol of wisdom for its ability to see in the dark and its close association with the Goddess Athena (Minerva in Roman mythology).

Intellectual prowess backed by military might and sound money fueled an explosion in creativity, progress, and trade that led Athens to flourish and dominate the ancient world.

Athenian Owl coins were one of the first coins circulated internationally and came to embody knowledge and the prosperity that comes with it.

Our 1 oz Athenian Owl Silver Round pays homage to the original and features a majestic owl with outstretched talons landing on the branch of an olive tree under darkness. The word “WISDOM” is inscribed along with the 2017 year-date.

The intricately designed back of this .999 fine silver roundfeatures the phrase "Free Markets & Free People” with a lion and bull near the center as tribute to their appearance on the first coins ever minted millennia ago in Lydia. 

1 oz Athenian Owl Silver Rounds are a limited mintage, collectible round at affordable bullion pricing.


The Athenian Owl Is Available for 90 Days Only

After August 30, 2017, we'll stop minting the Athenian Owl and it will never be produced again.

Multiples of 20 come sealed in tubes. Multiples of 500 come in sealed boxes.
