The Roman Army is known for being one of the most effective in all of history as it helped the Roman Empire become the largest in the history of mankind. This empire spanned from the British Isles to the Middle East.
The obverse of each of these coins shows the fourth-generation depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. This image was created by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998. Her Majesty has been featured on commonwealth coinage since she ascended to the throne in 1952.
On the reverse of each 2017 1 oz Silver Niue Warriors of History Romans Proof Coins, you will see a Roman warrior during battle. In the background, you will see more of the men in the army. The background is designed in an antique finish, while the single Roman soldier, in his full battle regalia, is depicted in full color.
Like the rest of the coins in the series, these all have a unique antique finish that makes the coins look older than they actually are. On top of this unique finish, each coin also has part of the design in full color to make the warrior really stand out.
All of these coins will ship in a display box with a Certificate of Authenticity. The certificate features a one-of-a-kind production number that is unique to each individual coin.
The New Zealand Mint is a privately-owned facility in Auckland. While the mint creates a variety of bullion coinage for a number of different South Pacific nations, it doesn’t produce any for New Zealand. All of New Zealand’s coins and currency are created by the Royal Mint and the Royal Canadian Mint.
