The Athenian Owl Tetradrachm was issued in Athens and used throughout the city-states of Ancient Greece for more than nearly 500 years. Introduced in 510 BC, the coins were produced regularly in Athens through 38 BC.
The Athenian owl is featured on the reverse of all 2022 Niue Athena Owl Stackable 1 oz Silver Coins. This design is inspired by the Ancient Greek Tetradrachm and bears an owl on a branch. Behind the owl, there is an olive sprig with a crescent moon above the owls head. An inscription on the bottom provides essential information about the metal content, reading, “1 TROY OUNCE .999 FINE SILVER.”
Queen Elizabeth II is depicted on the obverse of the 2022 Niue Athena Owl Stackable 1 oz Silver Coins. In this effigy, Her Majesty is found in right-profile relief wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. This tiara is believed to be her favourite, features on countless denominations of British and Commonwealth currency, and was gifted to her grandmother, Mary of Tec, when she married her grandfather King George V.
The casino-style reeded edge makes them stack securely on top of one another.
