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 design depicts Aphrodite sitting on the beach at Aphrodite’s Rock surrounded by scallop shells, holding a mirror in her left hand, with a dove perched on her right hand. She is accompanied by a swan and three dolphins, with the ocean and clouds in the background. The design also includes the inscription APHRODITE, and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
A brief annotation In ancient Greek mythology, Aphrodite was born out of the sea after Cronus castrated Uranus and threw his genitals into the ocean. The water began to bubble and foam in the spot where Uranus himself had also plunged, and suddenly, a beautiful maiden rose up from the sea foam. The woman, Aphrodite, floated to the shores of Cyprus on a giant scallop shell. 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.

Продолжение темы  боги( богини ) Олимпа ... Человеку которому нравятся античность , может покоробить от столь сомнительной трактовки образа богини Афродиты .

Вторая монета из серии, стилистика выдержанна. Буду наблюдать дальше за серией
Работа интересная, высокий рельеф только подчёркивает оригинальной идеи.
