Commonly referred to as Sparta, the city-state was actually known as Lacedaemon during antiquity. Sparta was the name of the main settlement within the city-state and was located along the banks of Eurotas River. Sparta rose to become the most dominant military force on land by 650 BC and was generally viewed as the leading city-state as a result. During the Greco-Persian Wars, Sparta was the leading force due to its military might.
On the obverse of 1 oz Silver Spartan Warrior Rounds, you’ll find the imposing figure of a Spartan warrior leaping through the air to drive his spear into an enemy on the field of battle. In his left hand, he wields a shield to defend himself while he prepares to land a death blow with the spear in his right hand.
Spartan warriors were considered the elite forces of antiquity and for good reason. Their successes on the battlefield were the result of a lifetime of training. It is said that young boys were judged almost immediately at birth by their appearance and whether or not it was presumed they’d grow to be good warriors. In any case, Spartan males began a lifetime of military training at the age of six that included sports, lessons in tactics, and physical drills to boost stamina and strength.
The reverse of Silver Spartan Warrior Rounds includes the Corinthian helmet of Spartan warriors. Behind it, you’ll notice the spear used in the phalanx wall. The short sword and battle ax used in close combat are also depicted.
