    Description

    First struck between 454 and 440B.C.  The Athena Owl Tetradrachm was one of the first coins to be struck with both an obverse and reverse.  The obverse features Athena, the patron goddess of Athens, and on the reverse, the Athens owl, Athena’s mascot and symbol, also known as the Minerva owl.

    • Contains 2 oz. Troy .999 Fine Silver
    • Obverse: Portrait of Athena, the virgin goddess of wisdom with an outer ring of dentils surrounding.
    • Reverse: A depiction of the “Owl of Athena,” also known as the “Owl of Minerva.”  The inscription “ΑΘΕ” is an abbreviation of ΑΘΗΝΑΙΩΝ, which may be translated as “of the Athenians,” with an outer ring of dentils surrounding.

    Note to collectors: Being hand fabricated, hot struck, and antiqued, these medals will exhibit some small irregularities that are not considered to be detracting. Great care is taken to ensure there are no glaring inclusions that might diminish eye-appeal while still remaining true to the nature of the fabrication techniques employed.
