Winged Victory - 2021 Silver Proof High Relief Coin

Issued as a legal tender under the Australian Currency act 1965 and struck by The Perth Mint from 1 oz of 99.99% pure silver. No more than 3,000 of these

This magnificent 1 oz silver high relief coin features an innovative new design celebrating Nike, the goddess of victory from renowned American coin engraver John M. Mercanti.

In Greek mythology, Nike was invited to live on Mount Olympus by Zeus, the king of the gods, as a reward for becoming his charioteer during the Titan War. Guiding Zeus's horses through the battlefields, she is said to have bestowed fame and glory in the form of laurel wreaths on his victorious army.

Nike was the inspiration for Gilbert Doble's Winged Victory, created for the top of the Marrickville Soldier's Memorial unveiled in Sydney after WW I.

This coin is packaged in a classic grey display case within an illustrated shipper and accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

The Winged Victory coin's reverse portrays an art Deco style interpretation of Nike. Her muscular figure, symbolising strength, is seen kneeling as she honours an unseen hero with a victory laurel in the palm of her right hand. She holds a sword in a non-threatning position low on her left side as a gesture of respect. In a magnificent design flourish, Nike's figure is enveloped in a beautifully symmetrical representation of her feathered wings.

The coin's obverse depicts the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2021 year-date, the weight and fineness and the monetary denomination

The coin's high relief reverse and obverse are minted on concave surfaces to ensure optimum flow of metal is achieved by the strike of the die.
