2024 Chad Ares 10 oz Silver Antiqued High Relief Coin
2024 Chad Ares 10 oz Silver Antiqued High Relief Coin. Ares was the Olympian god of war, battlelust, courage and civil order. In ancient Greek art he was depicted as either a mature, bearded warrior armed for battle, or a nude, beardless youth with a helm and spear. Ares’ main attribute was a peaked warrior’s helm. Even in domestic scenes, such as feasts of the gods, he was depicted either wearing or holding his helm. The god’s other attributes included a shield, a spear and sometimes a sheathed sword. Although his shield was often decorated with an emblem of some sort, ancient artists simply used a generic one drawn from their standard repertoire rather than something specific to the god. Ares was usually dressed as a standard Greek warrior with a short tunic, breastplate, helm and greaves. The breastplate was often omitted in favour of a simple tunic, and he was sometimes depicted nude except for the helm and shield. Ares can be quite difficult to identify in ancient Greek art as there is little to distinguish him from other warrior figures. Ares shield is on the obverse side and the convex/concave nature of the design brings both sides of the artwork to life. Sized at 80mm diameter, this 10 oz 999 Pure Silver coin is struck concaved in ultra-high relief, complemented with enamel coloring and antiqued silver finishing that accentuates the lifelikeness of Ares. This is a limited edition of 111 pieces only. Each piece is packaged and delivered with a Certificate verifying its edition number and authenticity. Sorry, our items are NOT available for pick-up.
