Sirens play minor but memorable roles throughout Greek mythology. Homer’s The Odyssey has a particularly exciting scene involving these deadly seductresses. While journeying home to Ithaca, the hero Odysseus encounters the Sirens, whom Circe had warned him about. To not succumb to their seductive singing, Odysseus orders his men to fill their ears with the beeswax Circe had provided. However, the ever-curious Odysseus keeps his own ears free but ties himself to the mast as they sail by.
The obverse of 2022 2 oz Antique Silver Mythical Creatures Sirens Coins contains the Niuean seal in the center. Surrounding this emblem is a quadrant containing the four mythical creatures in the series. Inscriptions along the edge read Mythical Creatures, 2022, 5 Dollars, Ag .999.
On the reverse face of 2022 2 oz Antique Niue Silver Mythical Creatures Coins there is a depiction of three Sirens. They are shown lingering on and by their island which is scattered with the skulls of their victims. In the distance, we see a ship passing by as the Sirens attempt to lure it in with their seductive sounds. Along the edge is an inscription reading Island of Sirens. The water in this image is colored blue, which adds a nice contrast with the antique finish found on the rest of the design.
