10 oz Athena Silver Round (With Acrylic Case)
(Excluding International Orders)
The first Athena coins were minted over 2,500 years ago in the influential city-state named for the goddess: Athens, Greece.
Our Athena Silver Round pays homage to the original and beautifully re-imagines the Goddess Athena with shield raised, standing ready to protect the people of Athens.
She is pictured in front of the Parthenon, the birthplace of democracy, ready to defend it from invaders. Her helmet is a traditional Hoplite helmet with an owl, a symbol of knowledge and the animal most often associated with the goddess.
Athena is a warrior, but unlike her war-like uncle Ares, a rational one. She embodies the ability to give judgment based on logic.
Athena battles for principles rather than passion or anger. The Ancient Greeks revered her intelligence, knowing she would come to the aid of those deserving.
That is why the word “JUSTICE” is inscribed on the front of the round, along with the 2018 year-date. The mirror finish accentuates the raised, stunning form of Athena.
The intricately designed back of this .999 fine silver round features the iconic GoldSilver crest, bearing 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.
The Athena is a limited mintage, collectible round at affordable bullion pricing.
