The collection of Silver Athena Owl Stackable Coins not only revive a historic denomination design, the products also come with a unique rim design that allows for the coins to be stacked safely and securely. The outer edge of the design field on both sides of the coin includes alternating raised and lowered fields that allow for easy stacking of the silver coins.
Both sides of the coin have a unique background design element that completes the ancient look and feel of the products. That background field includes a hammered, or stippled, finish that replicates the look of the Athenian Owl Tetradrachm as it would have appeared when originally produced in Greece.
The obverse side of 2020 1 oz Niue Silver Athena Owl Stackable Coins includes the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is depicted in this release in right-profile relief. The portrait of the Queen featured here was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley for the Royal Mint of England and was used widely throughout the Commonwealth as well. Though British coins have moved on, New Zealand, Niue, and other Commonwealth nations still use this popular effigy of Her Majesty.
On the reverse field is a depiction of the images found on the ancient Tetradrachm. The 2020 1 oz Niue Silver Athena Owl Stackable coins feature the Athenian owl resting on a wooden branch. There is an olive sprig behind the owl, a crescent moon overhead, and an inscription of “AOE” to the right side of the design field.
2020 1 oz Niue Silver Athena Owl Stackable Coins are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Coins are housed individually inside of protective plastic flips, in multiples of 20 with mint tubes, or in multiples of 500 with boxes.
