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 2015 year-date, the monetary denomination, and the weight and fineness of the coin. The coin’s reverse depicts Athena next to an olive tree, wearing an aegis and holding a large spear in her left hand, and a shield in her right hand. She is accompanied by a serpent and an owl, with the Parthenon and ancient Athens in the background. The design includes the inscription ATHENA, and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
A brief annotation In ancient Greek mythology, Athena was known as the Goddess of Wisdom and the patron of the city of Athens. She represented courage, inspiration, law and justice, mathematics, strength, strategy and art. Athena was also considered the Goddess of War and a companion of many heroes including Odysseus, Jason and Heracles. To showcase the depth and detail of the coin’s artistry, the release is struck in high relief to a rimless format, and finished with an antique treatment to reflect the age and strength of the theme.
