The first release in an interesting, thought provoking new series, this high relief silver coin depicts the Greek Goddess, Athena.
A twelve issue set, the Twelve Olympians of the Zodiac considers which of the traditional star signs coincide with the Gods of Olympus of Ancient Greece. For Athena, the decision is clear - Aries!
According to some astrologists, Aries is associated with creativity and thought, as well as the rising of the dawn, being the start of the Zodiac. All of these traits can be ascribed to Athena, as the offspring of Zeus. Intriguingly, the bird most associated with Aries is the owl... the bird widely used to depict Athena.
