These beautiful coins were inspired by the classic Owl Tetradrachm of ancient Greece that were produced as far back as the 5th Century BC. Featuring Athena on one side and her owl on the other, one of these coins would have been about a week’s wages for a Greek soldier. Arguably the most recognizable of all ancient coins, it is even believed that Teddy Roosevelt carried one in his pocket and used it as inspiration to refashion American coinage.
Each 2022 1/2 Gram Cook Islands Athenas Owl Coin in this online JM Bullion listing was produced by Coin Invest Trust, a precious metals company based out of Liechtenstein. These coins were also made in collaboration with The Cook Islands, where they hold legal tender status. They will arrive to you in brand-new condition housed inside protective plastic capsules.
The obverse of 2022 Cook Islands Gold Athenas Owl Coins contains a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Late Majesty served The United Kingdom and the Commonwealth for seven decades before passing away at the age of 96 in 2022. The obverse also includes inscriptions reading Elizabeth II, Cook Islands, 5 Dollars, 2022. You will also see the initials of the portrait’s designer, Ian Rank-Broadley.
On the reverse side of 2022 1/2 Gram Gold Athenas Owl Coins, there is a depiction of the little owl of Greek mythology. The owl appears perched on a ledge with its head tilted in a curious position. The reverse also contains an olive branch, which the goddess Athena used as a symbol of peace.
