In 2014, The Perth Mint issued its first ever obsolete coin from the Gods of Olympus series. The coins were incredibly popular and sold out immediately. As a tribute to the product that popularized the antique finish, the iconic Hera design returned in 2021 with a dual release of The Perth Mint in 1 oz and 5 oz silver in BU!
The reverse features image of Athena next to an olive tree and holding a large spear in her left hand, and her shield in her right hand. She is accompanied by a serpent and an owl, with the Parthenon and ancient Athens in the background. The coin shows the inscription ATHENA and the Perth Mint mark "P". The obverse depicts an image of Queen Elizabeth II, the denomination and the date the coin was struck.
