2021 $100 Winged Victory High Relief 1oz Gold Proof Coin
In Greek mythology, Nike was invited to live on Mount Olympus by Zeus, the king of the gods, as a reward for becoming his charioteer during the Titan War. In Australia, she was the inspiration for Gilbert Doble’s Winged Victory WWI statue, on top of the Marrickville Soldiers’ Memorial in Sydney. During 2013, the elegant copper monument was restored and permanently transferred to the Australian War Memorial in Canberra. On coins, Nike has been appearing on coins since Ancient times, always providing an eye-catching muse for currency designers. This is the case, unsurprisingly, for The Perth Mint’s designers with this precious metal Australian collectable coin. Struck in high relief, just 250 gold coins will be released.
