Fifth coin in our Warriors of History coin collection features Romans

Romans 1 oz Silver Coin by New Zealand Mint

The Warriors of History – Romans 1 oz Silver Coin is the fifth release in this exciting collection celebrating 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 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. With a limited mintage of only 5,000 coins, this coin would make an excellent gift for coin collectors and those interested in history. Get yours now, from New Zealand Mint.
