Description

Poseidon was god of the sea, earthquakes, storms and horses. He was the protector of all waters and sailors relied on him for safe passage. He carried a trident and was said to be able to cause an earthquake by tapping it on the ground. His primary means of transport was a chariot pulled by magnificent horses. He was father to Pegasus whom he conceived with Medusa, who was hideously cursed by Athena because she married Poseidon.

This striking design shows Poseidon in all his glory riding, trident raised and emerging from the waves in a chariot pulled by two magnificent horses.

The gold coins and the 1oz Silver Classic Proof and High Relief Antique coins are available individually. In addition, a limited edition four-coin Typeset containing the 1oz proof, a traditional antique finish, a gilded proof and a reverse proof, will also be available.
