- Great Warriors Series ROMAN LEGIONARY
- Coin in capsule+with Certificate of Authenticity+BOX
The Great Warriors four-coin series begins spectacularly with a stunning release portraying a Roman Legionary.
The legionary is dressed in a galea, a metal helmet with cheek guards, and a cuirass, body armour comprising overlapping iron plates. The legionary is also wearing an apron of leather strips featuring metal plates hanging from his belt, and caligae, leather sandals with iron hobnails.
The coin’s reverse portrays a Roman legionary in colour. Tough, courageous and highly-disciplined infantry soldiers, professional legionaries formed the backbone of the Roman army, a formidable fighting force that conquered and controlled Rome’s vast Empire.
Issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu, the coin depicts the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2010 year-date on the obverse.
Each coin is housed in a presentation case and illustrated shipper accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
