The ancient samurai warriors of Japan are among the most infamous warriors to ever set foot on the battlefields of human history. Feared for their full-body armor and immense skill in warfare, the samurai were viewed as important members of Japanese society, and their teachings are still commonly found in modern Japanese societal and martial arts teachings. Right now, the 2016 1 oz Silver Niue Warriors of History Samurai Coin is available to purchase on Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Arrives in a beautiful, Warriors of History-themed box with a Certificate of Authenticity.
  • Total mintage capped at 5,000 coins for this design release.
  • First release of the Warriors of History series.
  • Consists of One Troy ounce of .999 fine silver.
  • Bears a face value of $2 (NZD) backed by the government of Niue.
  • Obverse features the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
  • Reverse includes a brilliantly colorized image of a samurai warrior.

Samurai is a word with a deep heritage in Japanese society, and in Chinese society, as well. The Chinese character that samurai derived from was a verb to “accompany persons” in the upper ranks of society, which connects directly to the original Japanese term saburau.

Over time, this definition normalized across both Chinese and Japanese cultre to mean “Those who serve in close attendance to the nobility.” Samurai warriors were not only the military nobility of Japan and an officer caste in the culture’s medieval and early-modern history, they were usually closely associated with a clan or specific lord. They were highly trained in military tactics and grand strategy that evolved into the art of bushido. At their height, samurai numbered less than 10% of Japan’s total population.

This is the first release in the new series of silver colorized coins from the New Zealand Mint entitled Warriors of History. While the history of human warfare is full of examples of awe-inspiring fighters, the samurai may be the most well known around the world and make a fitting choice to launch this series.

The obverse of all coins in the series will feature the traditional portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Used on all commonwealth currency since 1998 when it was created by Ian Rank-Broadley, this right-profile portrait is the fourth-generation image of Her Majesty since 1952.

On the reverse of the 2016 1 oz Silver Niue Warriors of History Samurai Coin is the colorized image of a samurai warrior, clad in full body armor and preparing to draw his deadly, sharp samurai sword.

The New Zealand Mint is a private company located in Auckland and is the only mint in New Zealand. However, it is not the nation’s official mint. New Zealand currency is struck overseas at the Royal Canadian Mint and Royal Mint.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Do you charge sales tax?

Where does your spot price come from?

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?
