The Athenian Owl tetradrachm, renamed after the Greek goddess of wisdom, is arguably the most popular and recognized ancient coin. It represented about a week’s pay for ancient Greek soldiers. It is said that President Teddy Roosevelt carried an Athenian Owl as a lucky piece. The owl was associated with Athena very early on in archaic artworks and often depicted perching on her hand. Because of its strong connection with the goddess, the owl evolved into the Athenians’ own icon and graced a large variety of coins such as the tetradrachm from as early as the 5th century BC.

Since owls were believed to be foreseeing future events they became a representation of wisdom and intelligence. On the other hand, due to their nocturnal existence, these animals were equally linked to the occult and the Otherworld. Their mysterious habits, silent flight and haunting calls have earned them the reputation of superstitious and fearsome beasts in many parts of the world.

This ravishing masterpiece is kept in an antique look and impresses with its astonishing ultra high relief. A fascinating contribution to the history of coins.

CIT is very proud to introduce a coin honoring a very famous work of art! Fabergé Eggs are known as priceless treasures that were specifically made for Royalty and some of the wealthiest families in the world. 2020 marks the 100th Anniversary of the passing of Peter Carl Fabergé, a Russian jeweler that is best known for creating the famous Fabergé Eggs that were styled after the shape of Easter eggs.
One of his most famous works resides in the Liechtenstein Museum and is known as the Apple Blossom Egg. This Fabergé Egg was made for a very wealthy Russian industrialist named Alexander Kelch as a gift for his wife in 1901. It is one of the largest Fabergé Eggs ever made and one of the few that sits on its side instead of upright. The Egg is made out of stunning green jade, gold, silver, enamel, and precious diamonds.
CIT has utilized its world leading colorization techniques and combined them with its smartminting© high relief to produce a coin worthy of this cultural icon. This two ounce silver proof is also selectively gilded to capture the intricate Apple Trees that are made out of gold on the original Fabergé Egg. This proof is limited to only 888 pieces worldwide and will be presented in a custom presentation case that is in a shape of an egg.
While none of us will be able to own the original, you can own a piece of history by adding this to your collection!
