This Athenian Owl Tetradrachm was struck over 2,400 years ago in Ancient Greece, and to this day, this stunning example remains in Mint State condition. The high relief design of this coin is struck onto a thick silver planchet, which was the standard of these coins in ancient times. On the obverse of this tetradrachm is a beautiful, well-struck image of the goddess of wisdom, Athena. Flip the coin over to the reverse to witness an equally as stunning image of an owl, which was known as a symbol for Athena. Throughout time, the Athenian Tetradrachm has been a numismatic favorite of ancient coin collectors.
