The Twelve Olympians were the most powerful gods and goddesses in the Greek pantheon of deities. The group was known collectively as the Olympians because they inhabited the peak of Mount Olympus. Poseidon occupied one of the top spots in the pantheon of Greek deities and had control over the seas.

Poseidon’s power was rooted in control of the seas, but his control and powers extended much further. He was also considered the god of storms, earthquakes, and horses. In many Greek depictions, and those of his Roman counterpart Neptune, he is shown with a trident in his hands. The trident gives him the power to control the condition of the seas, summon storms, and even generate earthquakes.

The Perth Mint has unveiled a dual release for each of the Silver Gods of Olympus coins, producing a 1 oz BU and antique-polished coin for investors and collectors. The BU coins, though limited in mintage, do have a higher mintage than the very limited antique issues.
Queen Elizabeth II is depicted on the obverse of 2021 Silver Gods of Olympus Poseidon Coins. This bust of the Queen was created in 1998 for the Royal Mint of England by Ian Rank-Broadley. It featured on British coins through 2015, Australian coins from 1999 to 2018/2019, and is still in use on Tuvalu, Cook Islands, and Niue coins, among other Commonwealth nations.
The bearded figure of Poseidon is shown charging across the seas on a horse-driven chariot in the reverse design of 2021 1 oz Tuvalu Gods of Olympus Poseidon Coins. This design is the same used by the Perth Mint in its original Gods of Olympus high-relief issues in 2014 and 2015. The image of Poseidon includes two horses driving his chariot as he reaches for his trident. In Greek mythology, the horses that drove Poseidon’s chariot were known as hippocampus, or seahorses.
