Coin Story

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 legendary Spartan Empire was the powerful Greek city-state from the 6th to the 2nd century. Defeating the Athenians in the Peloponnesian Wars established Sparta as the leading power of Greece.

Spartan soldiers were elite fighters, famous for their physical strength and discipline. By using slaves for all manual labour, the entire male population of Sparta was free to enter military training from an early age. The foot-soldiers were heavily armed with spears, shields and red cloaks, and their use of structured formations in battles was unrivalled until the Roman conquest.
