Centuries before the deity Apollo would be depicted by the ancient Greeks as the charioteer of the sun, that role belonged to the mighty Titan named Helios. This figure of justice and serenity had an impact on culture and myth even after his own cult gradually faded, and he’s fittingly celebrated in the Divine Faces of the Sun series by the 2022 Antique Niue Helios 3 oz Silver Coin, now available from Provident Metals.
The 2022 Antique Niue Helios Silver Coin is a triumph of medallic artwork with a gorgeous antique finish, selective gilding, and a stone inset that will make it a standout piece for collectors and investors. Provident Metals fully insures each shipment, which comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and beautifully designed box packaging.
The coin’s obverse features a legal tender effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, along with the inscriptions “Niue Island,” “Elizabeth II,” “5 Dollars,” and “2022.” It identifies silver content as “3 oz,” “Ag999.”
An intricate portrait of Helios dominates the reverse. The Titan appears underneath an inscription of his name, with an intricate backdrop of decorative elements and surrounded by his four divine horses. He holds a depiction of the sun whose warmth radiates from its amber insert, while a touch of selective gilding shows on his serene features as a golden mask.
The Divine Faces of the Sun series commemorates a series of solar deities and mythic figures that various human cultures have associated with our life-giving star over the centuries. The touches of selective gilding and amber inserts provided a certain unity of visual themes across each coin, and each limited-edition piece is a showcase of finely-sculpted detail, as seen with Helio’s entry into the series.
