The first international currency originated in Ancient Greece. It was the reverse that inspired the coin series "Athenian Owl." The coins with the symbol of the Athenian Owl were producing from silver even before our era. Samples of these coins well preserved to this day, which allowed recreate this symbol in a series of collectible coins named "Athens owl."
The series of coins dating from 2019, they issued in New Zealand, and the weight of the coins is standard - 1 ounce of 999th-grade silver. The obverse of the coin shows us the symbol of wisdom, Owl. To be more precise, it is an "Athene noctua" - a small bird of owl species, which is common in Greece. The coin is painted with unique technology and has a ruthenium layer. This technology makes the plumage looks very natural, and the silver quarter itself, despite its dark finish, is very bright. Yellow Swarovski crystals complement the charming eyes of the Owl. The reverse of the coin is wholly covered with ruthenium and has a dark graphite shade.
Coins with owls and Swarovski crystals are suitable for investment in precious metals, can be presented as a gift or to complement your collection of silver coins.
