Direct Coins is pleased to introduce the fifth coin in this exciting collection, the Warriors of History – Romans 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 soldiers of the Roman army were well-equipped and highly trained, and operated in strict formation on the battlefield. Their basic equipment consisted of a Cassis (helmet), Lorica Segmentata (armour), Gladius (sword), Pilum (spear), Scutum (shield). They regularly practised hand-to-hand combat with equipment that was deliberately heavier than that used in battle.
The army, famed for its discipline, organisation, and innovation in both weapons and tactics, allowed Rome to build and defend a huge empire - which for centuries would dominate the Mediterranean world and beyond.
This impressive coin features a coloured depiction of a Roman soldier ready for battle. He stands against an engraved, antique-finished background featuring Roman soldiers in action.
This 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.
