Coin Story

Human history is filled with stories of legendary warriors, who fought and conquered their enemies through the skillful use of weapons and superior battle tactics. An-Nasir Salah ad-Din Yusuf ibn Ayyub, or Saladin (1137 – 1193), founded the Ayyubid dynasty. Under Saladin, the Ayyubid army enacted victories against the Crusaders.

The army comprised an interesting mix of warriors and equipment. The success of the Ayyubid cavalry came from intense practice and good quality material. In battle these mounted soldiers used a range of tactics, including archery from a distance and the lance or sword at close range. Light cavalry were noted for their speed and manoeuvrability – very effective in ambushing enemy convoys.
