This unique silver coin, the third in the Perth Mint's new Gods of Olympus series, features a beautifully detailed image of Hades, the almighty god of the underworld. In ancient Greek mythology, Hades was worshiped as the God of the Underworld and the ruler of the dead. In addition to the underworld, he ruled over any and all things beneath the Earth, and for this reason he was also known as the God of Wealth as he presided over all the Precious Metals that existed underground. 

Coin Highlights:

  • Contains 1 oz of .999 fine Silver.
  • Each 2 oz Silver coin comes housed in a prestigious round wooden display case and includes a numbered certificate of authenticity.
  • Limited mintage of just 1,500 coins.
  • Obverse: Portrays the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination, and the 2014 year-date.
