Description of obverse and reverse Issued as legal tender of Tuvalu, the coin’s obverse bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, bordered by the inscriptions QUEEN ELIZABETH II, TUVALU, the 2014 year-date, the monetary denomination, and the weight and fineness of the coin. The coin’s reverse design depicts a bearded Zeus rising up into a stormy sky wielding his thunderbolt and sceptre with an eagle flying above his shoulder. The design also includes the inscription ZEUS and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
A brief annotation In ancient Greek mythology, Zeus was worshipped as the supreme ruler of Mount Olympus and the Pantheon of gods that lived there. He was the god of the sky and weather, law and justice, morals and fate, and the spiritual leader of both gods and men. Zeus seized control from the Titans and divided the universe between his siblings.  He took control of the heavens, Poseidon the sea and Hades the underworld.  To showcase the depth and detail of the coin’s artistry, the release was struck in high relief to a rimless format, and finished with an antique treatment to reflect the age and strength of the theme.

Господа , это не изображение Зевса - громовержца , это какой -то персонаж из  комикса . Ни чего интересного . Твердая тройка , только из -за того , что сохранили атрибуты греческого божества .

Отделка очень нравится, но Зевса можно было бы сделать получше
