Why add this 2016 Niue Spartan Warriors of History Antiqued Colorized Silver Proof to your collection?

The third release of the Warriors of History Collection, issued by the New Zealand Mint for the nation of Niue, commemorates the Spartan Warriors of ancient Greece. The Warriors from the ancient Greek city-state of Sparta were professional soldiers who began their education in a state sponsored program of military training and socialization at the age of seven. This stunning 2016 Spartan Warrior Proof is struck from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver, with a gorgeous antiqued finish embellished with color, and a limited mintage of 5,000 coins.

Dramatic battle scene

A brave Spartan Warrior in full color is illustrated on the reverse, armed with sword and shield, wearing a traditional tunic and crimson cloak. His fellow warriors and Greek style structures can be seen in the background. The portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II adorns the obverse, by sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley. The obverse bears the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "NIUE," "TWO DOLLARS," and "2016," while the reverse bears the inscriptions "SPARTANS" and "1 oz. 999 FINE SILVER."
