Product Information

 

 

In ancient Greek mythology, Hera was worshipped as the Goddess of Women and Marriage, the Queen of the Olympians and the wife of Zeus, who was the supreme ruler of Mount Olympus, and also her brother.

99.9% Pure Silver

Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 2oz of 99.9% pure silver.

High Relief Hera Design with Antique Finish

The reverse of the coin depicts Hera wearing a polos crown, sitting on a throne in the Temple of Hera, holding her lotus staff in her left hand. Hera is pictured with a peacock and a lion. The design includes the inscription HERA, and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.  

To capture the depth and detail of the design, the coin is struck in high relief to a rimless format and features an antique finish, which gives the coin an aged affect.

About the Series

Hera had the ability to bless and protect a woman’s marriage, bring her fertility, protect her children, and ensure she was financially secure. However, she was known for her vengeful and jealous nature, particularly toward her husband’s many lovers and their children, who she often punished. Despite her rage at his infidelities, Hera remained loyal and faithful to her husband, bearing three of his children, Hebe, Ares, and Hephaestos.  

Historically, Hera was often depicted in a standing position, or seated on a throne with a polos crown on her head, holding a lotus staff. Her other symbols included a cuckoo, which was representative of her marriage to Zeus; a peacock, signifying immortality; and a pomegranate, symbolising fertility. The lion was also considered sacred to Hera.
