2016 $2 Warfare – Roman Legion 2oz Silver High Relief Antiqued Coin

The Perth Mint has released the first coin in a new three coins Warfare series - Roman Centurion 2oz Silver High Relief Antiqued coin.

A centurion was a principal professional in the army of ancient Rome. Each centurion commanded a century, a unit of 100 soldiers within a Roman legion which comprised 3,000 to 6,000 soldiers.

Tough, courageous and highly disciplined, centurions formed the backbone for the Roman army, a formidable fighting force that conquered and controlled a vast empire. These highly esteemed officers received much greater reward than common soldiers and were responsible for enforcing discipline within the legion.

Struck by The Perth Mint form 2oz of 99/9% pure silver, the coin is issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 2,000 of the Warfare - Roman Legion 2018 2oz Antiqued Silver High Relief Rimless Coins.


Future Release : Warfare - Viking & Warfare - Calvary

The reverse of the coin features a group of Roman centurions fighting a battle against the Gauls. In the background are two centurions on horseback as well as a war elephant and an aquila, along with The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ Mintmark.

The obverse portrays the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination and the 2018 year-date.

To capture the depth and detail of the design, the coin is struck in high relief to a rimless format and has been individually 'antiqued' to give it a unique finish conveying the surface abrasions of an ancient artefact. This process results in the appearance of each con varying.

Each coin is presented in a classic grey display case, within an illustrated shipper and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

The coin is accompanied by 3D goggles* and an immersive 360 Degree panoramic illustration of the battle represented on the coin. The image can be automatically viewed on any smartphone by tapping the phone against the NFC chip included in the certificate, then placing the phone in the 3D VR Goggles - it is truly a sigh to behold.

Please note that only the first coin in the series comes with free 3D giggles, the goggles are not available seperately or with future releases.
