2021 5 oz Tuvalu Gods of Olympus - Zeus .9999 Silver Antiqued Coin (Certificate #9)
THE RETURN OF A CLASSIC
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 returned in 2020 with a first ever dual release by The Perth Mint in a 1oz silver format in BU and antiqued finish. In 2021, Zeus returns in this limited 5oz silver format!
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.
