A symbol of freedom, justice, and courage in the face of tyranny, commemorate the iconic warrior, Boudicca with this 1oz pure silver coin!
Boudicca was a Celtic queen and co-ruler of the British Iceni tribe along with her husband, Prasutagus. They were a client kingdom to Rome, maintaining a certain amount of self-rule. In his will, Prasutagus left half his kingdom to his daughters and the other half to the Emperor of Rome. However, upon his death, the Romans turned on the Icenis, raiding their lands and goods. They made the Icenis into slaves, had Boudicca whipped, and attacked Boudicca's daughters. Seeking revenge, Boudicca organized an uprising against the Romans, fighting at the head of the army. Even though she was defeated, she is seen as a national heroine in England.
With the use of colour and engraving, this bold piece shows Boudicca ready to take on the might of Rome, along with an illustration of her commanding her army for battle. The back of the coin includes the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, which guarantees that it is of legal tender.
The secure outer box is custom designed with the coin tucked inside black velvet. A Certificate of Authenticity and the unique serial number is printed on the box. If you want to know more details about your wicked cool collectible, flip open the box for the specifications.
