The popular Spiritual Art series from the Cook Islands celebrates a range of influential deities and religious artworks from around the world and across human history. A new issue commemorates Zeus, the Greek deity of sky and thunder and the king of the gods, capturing him in pure silver with gorgeous gold plating in artwork inspired by the famous monumental Statue of Zeus at Olympia, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The team at Provident Metals is delighted to make the 2022 Cook Islands Spiritual Art Zeus Father of the Gods 3 oz Silver Coin available for order.
The 2022 Cook Islands Spiritual Art Zeus Father of the Gods Silver Coin presents the thunder god in elaborate and naturalistic detail with ultra high-relief engraving and brilliant gilding. Each piece comes in a windowed display case with a Certificate of Authenticity showing the coin’s unique mintage number, and Provident Metals fully insures your shipment against loss or damage en route.
Despite its singular shape, this coin is legal tender of the Cook Islands, verified by an official effigy of Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse side. This is framed within geometric designs showing fluted Greek pillars below, and accompanied by the inscriptions “Elizabeth II,” “Cook Islands,” and “20 Dollars.”
The coin’s reverse side is a majestic miniature sculpture of Zeus on his throne, with a scepter in one hand and three thunderbolts in the other. He is draped in naturalistically folded robes and his throne is accentuated by fine decorative details.
Although this coin is not a direct replica of any one artwork, it is directly inspired by the legendary monument to Zeus at Olympia designed by the Greek sculptor Phidias. That statue made such an impression on all who saw it that accounts of it would survive in second-hand depictions and descriptions even after the original monument was destroyed in the 5th century AD. This entry in the Spiritual Art series draws on that tradition and provides a fresh take on its details and themes.
