Greek mythology is littered with gods and goddesses that hold major and minor responsibilities in the pantheon of mythology.

Hades is the brother of Zeus, King of the Gods and ruler of Mount Olympus, and Poseidon, the ruler of the seas. The three brothers once fought side-by-side to defeat the ruling gods of their father’s generation, the Titans. In defeating the Titans, the new gods of Greek antiquity took control of the cosmos and reigned over the destiny of mankind with an iron fist.
All of the 2014 2 oz Antique Silver Tuvalu Gods of Olympus Hades Coins are available to you with high-relief designs struck onto 2 oz silver blanks. The coining process that results in a high-relief strike entails striking the blank several times under intense pressure to create a sunken field with greater 3D visuals to the design element. The antique polish finishes off the appearance of the coins with a brushed, aged look. The Gods of Olympus coins ship with a circular, wooden display box and include a numbered Certificate of Authenticity from the Perth Mint.
On the obverse side of each 2014 Antique Silver Tuvalu Gods of Olympus Hades Coin, you will find the right-profile bust of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown in this design wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. This image was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley for the Royal Mint of England and began to feature on Australian and Commonwealth coins in 1999. It is still in use on coins for places such as Tuvalu, Niue, and the Cook Islands.
The reverse face of 2014 2 oz Antique Silver Tuvalu Gods of Olympus Hades Coins bears the image of Hades. The god of the dead and ruler of the underworld sits on a terrifying throne made of human skeletons with his three-headed guard dog, Cerberus, at his side.
