New Discovery – The Largest Hoard of Athenian Owls

This Greek Silver Tetradrachm was minted in Athens on between 440 and 494 B.C. Athens was the capital city of Attica which a region of the Greek empire. The Athenian Owl perhaps may be the most iconic and instantly recognizable designs found on ancient coinage. It flanked by the crescent moon, olive branch, and monogram of its city of origin. The obverse features the goddess Athena herself, protected by her beautifully designed helmet.

These coins are the first mass-circulated coin ever produced. It was because many skilled laborers and soldiers who were paid with these coins simply had no idea what a coin was. Therefore many coins are being marked with knives or other instruments used to cut into their surface and confirm their contents.

This Greek Silver coin has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in Choice Very Fine (Ch VF) condition. These coins have received the extra designation of being a part of The Parliament Collection. 

Other key features of this coin: 

  • You can hold Ancient History in your hand – Each coin is approximately 2,400 years old from a time when Athens was a cultural center of the world and the heart of ancient Greece. Now you can hold an actual piece of that history in your hands.
  • Each Coin Struck by hand – This Athenian Owl Silver Tetradrachm was carefully struck by ancient artisans more than two millennia ago. There are no two coins with exactly alike!
  • Special Pedigreed Label– Each coin will come sonically sealed in an acrylic coin holder and encapsulated with a special Parliament Collection label. A parliament refers to a gathering of owls and a fitting label for a coin from this important coin discovery.
  • Historic Designs  – These Owls proved very wise. Athena was the goddess of wisdom and warfare and the patron goddess of Athens. In Greek mythology, she was the daughter of Zeus. The owl is Athena’s familiar and, according to legend, she sometimes took the form of her owl.
