In Greek mythology, Athena was the Goddess of War, and represented courage, inspiration, law, and justice. The Silver Athena coin is the second coin released in the Goddesses of Olympus series from the Perth Mint. Its intricate design is almost too complex to explain with words.
On the reverse side of each coin, many of the symbols associated with the Goddess of War are featured in the design. Athena is featured in the center with a spear in her left hand and a shield, bearing the image of Medusas head, in her right. Behind her is the image of an olive tree, as well as the Parthenon on Acropolis Hill, which was originally built to honor Athena.
The obverse side of the coin bears the traditional imagery found on Perth Mint coins. Ian Rank-Broadleys right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II is featured in the center, with the engravings Elizabeth II, 2015 Tuvalu 2 Dollars, and the coins weight, metal content, and purity inscribed around the Queens image.
All of these coins are struck by the Perth Mint in Australia. The last operating facility from the Royal Mint system established during British imperial rule, the Perth Mint is now a state-owned entity of Western Australia. Although the Royal Australian Mint produces all circulation currency, the Perth Mint produces coins both for Australia and other nations throughout the South Pacific.
