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

Each Modern Ancient brings a coin from antiquity back to life with a contemporary twist.

The 1 oz Pegasus is GoldSilver's bestselling silver round. Minted annually, the 2017 version continues our tradition offering this unique and beautiful silver round at affordable premiums.
Investors choose the 1 oz Pegasus Silver Round for its .999 fine silver content, high-quality minting, and its striking design that embodies the independence afforded those who own silver.
The inspiration for the Pegasus comes from real coins circulated in Ancient Greece thousands of years ago.
Ancient Pegasus coin from approx. 340 B.C. (for reference only).
On the front of the round, the Pegasus, the icon from Greek mythology, is pictured in flight along with the inscription "FREEDOM" and the 2017 year-date. Just as Pegasus can soar through the air, we, too, can rise above earthly burdens. This 1 oz silver round is a timeless symbol of this lesson.
The intricately designed reverse side features the phrase "Free Markets & Free People." And a lion and bull are near the center of the round as tribute to their appearance on the first coins ever minted, dating back over 2,500 years ago in Lydia.
This video gives you a up-close look at the making of the Pegasus:
Unlike government issue coins, the Pegasus does not have high seigniorage costs (the difference between the value of money and the cost to produce and distribute it). This makes it a simple way to own stunningly minted silver as close to the spot price as possible.

The 10 oz Ajax is now here, with a production run limited strictly to only 500 units.
The front of this silver round features the ancient Greek hero, Ajax, who first appeared on coins minted over two thousand years ago. And its extra large size and mirror finish highlight all the intricate detail of Ajax in his epic pose.
The reverse features the inscription "Free Markets & Free People." A Bull & Lion appear as well, paying homage to mankind's first ever money coined in Lydia, in approximately 680 B.C.
Also stamped onto the back of each 10 oz Ajax is a unique serial number, identifying it as one of the 500 units produced.
It includes an elegant acrylic display case, making it a perfect decorative accent for your home or office. The case is held together by four rare-earth neodymium magnets – strong enough to securely protect your investment, but easy to open should you want a closer look.
The 10 oz Ajax and acrylic display case arrive packaged in a leatherette display box, making it a perfect gift for any silver collector or history enthusiast in your family.
All previous 10 oz Modern Ancients limited editions quickly sold out. And since only 500 of the 10 oz Ajax were minted, this will surely be something every silver investor will appreciate including in their collection.
