The second silver round in the series features the Goddess Nike, who appeared on Greek coins for many centuries. Each coin in this series will bring an ancient coin back to life with stunning artwork.
The obverse features Nike, the Goddess of Victory, with her wings spread amongst the clouds. She is carrying a torch in one hand, and has a laurel wreath to award a victor in her other hand. Nike was thought to fly around battlefields, rewarding victors with glory and fame symbolized by the laurel wreath.

The bull and lion surround a crest that is divided into four quadrants, each with an image and the crest is capped by a sun, symbolizing enlightenment. Below the crest is the symbol for wealth cycles, which closes resembles the symbol for infinity, and in the scroll work is the formula revealed in the video series "Hidden Secrets of Money" by Mike Maloney.
