In ancient Greek mythology Ares, known for his notorious love affairs and numerous children, was seen as the epitome of violence, destruction, and cruelty.
Mars – the father of Romulus and Remus – was worshipped as the protoplast of all Romans.
These two similar Ancient Deities come together on this superb high relief, highly detailed tow ounce silver coin. Beautifully struck by the geniuses at the Mint of Poland, the addition of a resin fill on Ares’ shield, over precise minting provides an unearthly extra feel. How fitting for a coin featuring such important Gods.
