This amazing 3 ounce .999 pure silver coin is part of Niue’s “Divine Faces of the Sun” series. Helios is the Greek god of the sun believed to be the actual personification of that central star of the solar system. He is portrayed in fantastic detail set upon a background of antique finish.
Like the sun, Helios is believed to be an unbiased witness of all events under the sun. The main decorations that unite all the coins of the series are selective gilding and the amber insert.
The warm yellow glow of the natural stone in each issue symbolizes the sun.
