Ancient Greek
Athens Owl Coin Jewelry

Athens was a prominent ancient Greece city, the center of classical culture and a great military power.  Also prominent was her coinage, primarily the Athenian owl, which became the most authoritative coinage of classical Greece.  First issued around 525 BC, the "owls",  which bear the helmeted head of Athena the patron goddess of Athens on the obverse and her attribute the owl, symbolizing wisdom, on the reverse, circulated for over 400 years.  During this period, the coins artistic style changed considerably but always maintained the same Athena and owl theme.

Certificates of Authenticity accompany all Ancient Greek Athens Owl coin jewelry.  View a typical New World Treasures photo type Certificate of Authenticity.
