The Triton collection was issued to mark Cyprus' accession to the EU in 2004. The whole collection is presented here for sale, a rare lot, and currently the only collection for sale on eBay. All coins are in uncirculated condition.

The collection contains 1 gold proof coin with a denomination of £20, 1 silver proof coin with a denomination of £1, and two cupronickel coins also with a denomination of £1.

It should be mentioned that the collector coin issued to mark Cyprus’s accession to the European Union and which depicts Triton trumpeting through a sea shell the birth of Aphrodite, has received worldwide acclaim. It was awarded first prize in a competition held in 2005 at the Numismatic Exhibition of Vicenza in Italy, gaining the title “Finest Coin in the World minted in 2004”. Furthermore, it gained the title “Best Crown of the World” in a competition organised in 2006 by Krause Publications, publishers of World Coin News.
