2018 Niue $2 Imperial Art - Greece 2oz Silver Coin
It was just a matter of time before the current trend of high relief coins came around to the glory of Ancient Greek architecture. And, with this two ounce silver coin, here we are!
The perfect exemplar of Ancient Greek structures, the famous Parthenon structure, perched atop the Acropolis, appears here, on the reverse of this 50mm coin. On the obverse, a bust of Plato, inside a reconstruction of how the interior of the Parthenon may have appeared back in Ancient times.
Enhanced further by the addition of a beautiful azure-coloured agate stone, reminiscent of the gorgeous beaches of Greece, each of these high relief, high detail coins are part of a tiny worldwide limit of just 500 pieces.
