Boudicca was a Celtic queen and co-ruler of the British Iceni tribe along with her husband, Prasutagus. They were a client kingdom to Rome, maintaining a certain amount of self-rule. In his will, Prasutagus left half his kingdom to his daughters and the other half to the Emperor of Rome. However, upon his death, the Romans turned on the Icenis, raiding their lands and goods. They made the Icenis into slaves, had Boudicca whipped, and attacked Boudicca’s daughters. Seeking revenge, Boudicca organized an uprising against the Romans, fighting at the head of the army. Even though she was defeated, she is seen as a national heroine in England.
For the obverse of the 2022 1 oz Colorized Niue Silver Women in History Boudicca Coin, the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II is featured. This specific design was curated by the famed artist, Ian Rank Broadley. It features her in the right profile with a radiant crown. It includes inscriptions that read: ELIZABETH, NIUE, 2022, 2 DOLLARS, AND 1 OZ 999 FINE SILVER.
For the reverse of the 2022 Colorized Niue Silver Women in History Boudicca Coin, a gorgeous design of Boudicca is featured. With the use of color and engraving, this bold piece shows Boudicca ready to take on the might of Rome, along with an illustration of her commanding her army for battle. She is a stunning red-haired beauty with blue battle markings smearing her face. She looks brave and ready to fight for her nation.
