INSURED SHIPMENT / OWN COLLECTION

This coin belongs to the "Gods" series. 

This silver coin was struck from two ounces of pure silver. Additionally, it was oxidised to bring out its antique finish. The coin's reverse depicts an image of a beautiful Apollo dancing with a woman, with her angry husband in the background. The obverse is unchanged throughout the series - it is an image of Queen Elizabeth II with a Greek pattern. 

Apollo is the son of Zeus and Leto. He was a god of music, health, art, oracle, fortune-teller, guide of the Muses - nine daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne. In his later beliefs, Apollo took over the tasks of the sun god Helios - driving the golden chariot of the sun through the sky. The patron of poets and singers. In their beliefs, the Greeks increasingly increased Apollo's competence, worshipping him even as a god of world law and order. Apollo was the guardian of the Delphic oracle.
