2016-2017 Cook Islands Silver Gods & Goddesses Antiqued Set 14pc
The Mighty Deities of Ancient Greece in One Massive, Monumental Set!
From their perch on top of Mount Olympus, the gods and goddesses of ancient Greece ruled over mortal and immortal alike. Through stories of conflict and bravery, deceit and intrigue, reward and punishment, the tales of Zeus and Hera's court provided drama and guidance for an entire civilization. And while millennia has passed since the peak of their influence, the stories of these legendary figures still entertain through their immortal poems, ballads and songs.
So it's no surprise that these deities have inspired the artisans of Australia's Perth Mint, one of the most acclaimed official mints in the world, to create one of the most phenomenal silver coin series to ever arrive at our vaults. Weighing in at 31 ounces of 99.9% fine silver spread out across 14 high-relief coins, this complete 2016-2017 Cook Islands Gods and Goddesses Antiqued Set is definitely one for the ages!
- 12 ANCIENT GREEK GODS AND GODDESSES-- The legends of Greece are here -- Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, Demeter, Athena, Apollo, Artemis, Ares, Aphrodite, Hephaestus, Hermes and Hestia -- all featured in their own lushly illustrated scene that perfectly exhibits their role in the Greek pantheon.
- EXPERTLY STRUCK IN HIGH RELIEF-- On a canvas of two ounces of 99.9% fine silver, each coin is skillfully struck in high relief using state-of-the art technology. The time and craft that goes into the creation of these coins produces extraordinarily detailed designs, made even more stunning by a gorgeous antiqued finish.
- TWO ADDITIONAL COINS!-- To cap the series, the Perth Mint also released two final coins in addition to the 12 gods and goddesses. Hades, along with his three-headed hound Cerberus are featured on a two-ounce coin, while a scene featuring all 13 gods and goddesses is minted on a massive five-ounce coin. Both are included here, making this the ultimate complete set!
- COOK ISLANDS LEGAL TENDER-- Each two-ounce 2016-2017 Gods and Goddesses coin in this collection is two dollars legal tender for the Cook Islands, as seen on each coin's obverse along with a profile of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The five-ounce 2017 Gods of Olympus coin is five dollars legal tender, also for the Cook Islands.
- FANTASTIC PERTH MINT PACKAGING-- The first 12 Gods and Goddesses coins will arrive in a Perth Mint box along with three numbered certificates of authenticity (one for each four-coin series). The final two coins will arrive in their own individual cases, also with their own numbered certificates of authenticity.
- A LIMITED-MINTAGE EVENT! -- No more than 500 of these sets will ever be possible, due to the limited mintage of these coins. Not only that, but many of these coins have already been secured individually, making complete sets like this all the rarer!
This landmark set is a WORLD EXCLUSIVE that's only available through GovMint.com -- you won't find this release anywhere else! Demand for the first installments of this series was already intense, and we're expecting this complete set to quickly disappear from our vaults. Make it yours today, or you might have to wait another millennium or two for another set like it!
