Clever investors were quick to grab the Athenian Owl silver coin when it came on to the market in 2017. The Silver Athenian Owl is one of the most exciting coins that the New Zealand Mint has produced for the tiny Pacific island nation of Niue to date. It’s the world's cheapest silver investment coin and features a unique stackable edge detail.
The coin is also of great interest to collectors thanks to a stunning reverse design of a stylised owl that is based on the 2,500-year old Ancient Greek Tetradrachm. The coin's obverse carries the Sir Ian-Rank Broadley image of HM Queen Elizabeth II and the date of issue. Additionally, each Athenian Owl is struck from .999 silver making it a very smart choice for any buyer.
