Over 2,000 years ago the Athenian Owl Tetradrachm was the most influential coin in the world, now the Zealand Mint has captured that ancient handcraftsmanship on the beautiful Athenian Owl 1oz Silver $2 Coin. The owl symbolises strength, wisdom, and insight. In ancient Greek mythology, the goddess Athena kept an owl on her shoulder that revealed truths to her and represented wisdom and knowledge. Owls were widely associated with Athena's blessing, and Green soldiers viewed the sight of owls before a battle as a symbol that the goddess was on their side.

We will do our upmost to send as many different dates, but this may not always be possible as they are pre-owned items and therefore availability is limited.
