Direct Coins is pleased to offer the second coin in this exciting collection, the Warriors of History – Vikings 1oz Silver Coin.
The Warriors of History coin collection brings alive the stories of some of the most legendary warriors in history.
Human history is filled with stories of legendary warrior people, who fought and conquered their enemies through the skilful use of weapons and their superior battle tactics.
The Vikings were the seafaring people from Scandinavia who lived in the late 8th-11th century. They were known as warriors, traders and global explorers, who discovered the Americas long before Columbus and traded their goods as far as Baghdad.
These fierce pillaging Norsemen, in their silently approaching longships, caused terror across northern Europe with their raids of coastal towns and monasteries. Weapons such as the spear, sword and battle-axe were used in these attacks, aimed at capturing slaves as well as valuable loot.
This stunning coin reverse shows a coloured illustration of a Viking warrior in full battle-gear. He stands against an engraved coastal background showing two longships and Viking warriors ready for battle.
The high impact, colourful and partly-engraved coin comes presented in a sleek and stylish themed rectangular coin case, with textured cover. The uniquely numbered Certificate of Authenticity sits inside the coin case.
The New Zealand Mint will release no more than 5,000 of the 2016 Warriors Of History - Vikings 1oz Silver Coin.
