Zeus has many roles in Ancient Greek mythology, much like many of the other major gods and goddesses did. Though his primary title was as King of the Gods and ruler of Mount Olympus, he was also considered the god of the sky, lightning, thunder, and even honor and justice. The latter titles were ironic given his personal behaviors according to mythology.
Though Zeus was married to his sister, Hera, he was famous in Greek literature for the number of affairs he had that included both mortal women and other deities of Olympus. Among his offspring were the likes of Hercules and Perseus. Both men were considered Demi-Gods, having some of the power of a god, but also the mortality of a human being.
On the obverse side of 2014 2 oz Antique Silver Tuvalu Gods of Olympus Zeus Coins is a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. This right-profile bust of Her Majesty is the fourth produced by the Royal Mint of England and was designed in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley. The image shows the Queen wearing her favorite piece of jewelry, the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara.
The reverse face of 2014 Antique Silver Tuvalu Gods of Olympus Zeus Coins includes a depiction of Zeus amidst a stormy backdrop on Mount Olympus.
