In 2014, The Perth Mint released its first ever antiqued coins in the Gods of Olympus series. The coins were incredibly popular and immediate sell outs. To pay homage to a product that popularised the antiqued finish, the iconic Zeus design is back in 2020 and for the  first time ever in a dual release format by The Perth Mint will be available in both BU and antiqued finish.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 1,500 of the 2020 Gods of Olympus – Zeus 1oz Silver Antiqued Coin. The coin is issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu.

In ancient Greek mythology, Zeus was worshipped as the supreme ruler of Mount Olympus and the Pantheon of gods that lived there. He was the god of the sky and weather, law, justice, morals and fate, and the spiritual leader of both gods and men.

Zeus seized control from the Titans and divided the universe between his siblings. Zeus took control of the heavens, Poseidon the sea, and Hades the underworld.

The coin’s reverse depicts a bearded Zeus rising up in to a stormy sky wielding his thunderbolt and sceptre with an eagle flying above his shoulder. The design includes the inscription ZEUS and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

The coin’s obverse portrays the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination and the 2020 year-date.
