Legendary Warriors coin series pays tribute to the valiant warriors of past centuries
telling their story with a language of coin art. Being a legal tender of the
Republic of Cameroon, the coin is produced in 3 oz of .999 silver. Featuring a
Spartan Hoplite in the heat of a battle, this silver coin will impress the audience
with its extraordinary high relief details and atmospheric action scene.
The Spartan Hoplite, depicted on the coin, rushes towards the danger ignoring the
rain of arrows and holding the gilded xiphos. Enhanced with some colour, the
dramatic battle scene in the background looks literally covered with blood. Richly
decorated with Greek motives, the rim encircles the reverse composition but at
the same time leaves it open and becomes a fully-fledged participant of the story.
