The most eye-catching one undoubtedly is the first coin of a new series entitled “Gods of Olympus”. An extremely limited mintage of 1,500, an antique finish and rimless design add to the desirability of the coin. The 2014 Zeus High Relief 2 oz Silver Coin bears a reverse design by Perth Mint artist Tom Vaughan. In the image, the mythical gold is shown against a stormy sky holding a thunderbolt in his outstretched arm and a scepter behind him. An eagle flies over the rimless design. Coins ship inside a prestigious Perth Mint wooden display case with a unique round design and a detailed image on its lid. An illustrated shipper and a numbered Certificate of Authenticity are also included.
