Numiartis has showcased four Greek gods in its groundbreaking series and now the big daddy, ‘Zeus’ steals the limelight

It was with the debut of the first in the Gods series from Numiartis back in 2017, that collectors took notice of a new wave of ancient lythology coins from the Mint of Poland. That stunning piece of numismatic art opened up the floodgates to a hugely impressive repertoire of beautiful coin issues that continues to this day.

Ares was the first in this series, but by no means the last. It was followed by Poseidon, Hephaestus, and Apollo, each of an equally high standard. The King of the Gods, Zeus, is the fifth to launch. Just a couple of images at present, but they are of an actual coin, not renders, and it looks well up to the job of keeping the series reputation intact.

Zeus is the most powerful of the Greek Gods, linked with the sky and thunder, so his depiction on the coin is very apt. Hurtling to Earth from Olympus with an eagle at his side (a common association), and holding the lightning bolt for which he is famous, it’s full of power and dynamism. The gilded element, which is a series signature, is well chosen, the lightning bolts seeming to glow with power. A really cool piece of art all told.

As before, this is a two-ounce, ultra-high relief silver coin with an antique finish. It comes boxed with a Certificate of Authenticity, of course. If you have any of the previous issues, you’ll no doubt want to pick up one of the 500 Zeus coins that make up the mintage. It’s available to order now from Intercoins Berlin, or from a selection of other dealers around the world. First class. Again.
