Coin Story

This Gods of Ancient Greece Zeus coin is the first in a 5-coin new release series from New Zealand Mint. The design for this 2 oz rectangular Silver coin has been inspired by ancient sculpture, coins and architecture of the classical Ancient Greece. Zeus, ‘the cloud gatherer’, has been captured in a moment, seated in majesty, with his sceptre spreading thunderbolts across the sky.

Reverse Design

This high relief, rectangular coin, has been inspired by ancient sculpture, coins, vases and architecture, while also channelling classical and renaissance paintings of this iconic God of Ancient Greece. Zeus, ‘the cloud gatherer’, has been captured in a moment, seated in majesty, with his sceptre spreading thunderbolts across the sky. These elements, along with an eagle at his side, emphasize his divine status as the father of Gods and men. In the background, an Ancient Greek temple is set against a dramatic highly polished sky.

Obverse Design

This features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
