The Perth Mint’s Gods of Olympus coin series has won stunning popularity with discerning collectors and investors for years, and its sixth release continues that trend with a tribute to Aphrodite. This ancient goddess embodied numerous contradictions that made her a source of constant fascination in both the ancient and modern worlds. She represented love and lust, procreation and passion, beauty and pleasure, making her a patroness of both courtesans and marriage and of the luxuries that enriched life. On the other hand, she represented the dangers of passion, the excesses that could drive men and gods into madness. Finally, she was a patroness of sailors as a goddess born from the sea, as seen on the 2022 1 oz Antique Tuvalu Gods of Olympus Aphrodite Silver Coin.

According to one of the most ancient mythic accounts from the poet Hesiod, Aphrodite emerged fully formed from a foaming sea in the wake of a battle between Titans. According to custom, there was a specific place where this miraculous birth happened, a coastal site on Cyprus called Aphrodite’s Rock. This precious pure silver collectible from the Perth Mint shows Aphrodite in a high-relief engraving with beautiful detail on that very rock, with an antiqued finish accentuating the masterful medallic artwork.
The 2022 Antique Tuvalu Gods of Olympus Aphrodite Silver Coin comes in themed packaging, protected inside a secure capsule. Each and every shipment is tracked and fully insured against any chance of loss or damage en route, by the team at JM Bullion.
The obverse side of the coin features the globally recognized Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of the late Queen Elizabeth II to confirm it as legal tender. This is accompanied by the inscriptions “1 oz 9999 Ag,” “2022,” “TUVALU,” “1 DOLLAR,” and “QUEEN ELIZABETH II.”
The coin’s reverse side shows Aphrodite rising from the sea and seated on the rock that bears her name. She’s clad in flowing robes with a dove in one hand and a mirror in the other, with dolphin and fish, gulls and scallop shells arrayed around her and a swan in the foreground accompanied by the inscription “APHRODITE.”
