Each of these 2017 1 oz Niue Silver Warriors of History Romans Proof Coins have a beautiful antique finish. The process of antiquing results in a traditional look to the coins finish, with a patina that can (typically) only come through decades or centuries of existence. It adds warmth to the coins visuals and depth to the design.
The Roman Army was one of the worlds most effective fighting forces and helped the Roman Empire build what would become the largest empire in the history of mankind, stretching from the British Isles to the deserts of the Middle East.
On the obverse of the 2017 1 oz Niue Silver Warriors of History Romans Proof Coin is the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majestys portrait is featured on the obverse of all Niue coinage, and this design is from Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998.
The reverse of the Warriors of History Romans Proof coin includes the depiction of a Roman Legion in the midst of battle. The line of warriors in the background are captured in antique-finished silver, while the leading Roman in the foreground has its full battle regalia on with colorization bringing his uniform to life.
