The silver coin Athenian Owl/Athene in colour reminds of the famous, more than 2000-year-old coin with owl motif, the "Attic tetradrachm". The owl has always symbolised strength, wisdom, and knowledge. The motif depicts an owl on a branch and an olive branch symbolising peace. The Greek letters Alpha, Theta, and Epsilon are depicted to the right of the owl. They represent the ancient Greek abbreviation of the city of Athens. Weight and grade are also included in the design. The reverse depicts the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, the year of issue 2021 as well as the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II", "NIUE", and "TWO DOLLARS". The limited Athenian Owl/Athene colour coin will be delivered in a protective slab including a product card.

Special characteristics: due to the embossed fluting, the coins can be stacked on top of one another; these types of coins are called "stacker" in English.

The Athenian Owl is the most important silver coin from ancient Greece and over 2,500 years old. It has probably been struck with the crescent moon motif only since the Battle of Marathon.

This ancient Greek silver coin is the model for this exciting reissue and depicts the famous Athenian Owl in its full beauty and magnificence in the inner ring. The fluting on the outer ring allows stacking the coin.

Obverse: the motif side of the coin depicts the Athenian Owl and fluting on the outside

Reverse: the reverse depicts the profile portrait of the British Queen Elizabeth II in the inside ring, the face value numeral, and the fluting on the outside to be able to stack the coin
