During the historic struggle over the rule of the Holy Land and the city of Jerusalem which would inaugurate the idea of the Crusade, orders of knights that dedicated themselves to fighting for the Church and practicing piety sprang up all over Europe. One of the most famous and respected such orders where the Knights of the Temple of Solomon, better knowns as the Knights Templar, active from the 12th through the 14th centuries. The Templars could always be found on the frontlines of the fighting but also amassed great wealth, power, and landholdings.
Their distinctive raiment is commemorated in a cute, miniaturized Chibi format with the 2022 Niue Silver Chibi Warriors of the World Templar Knight Shaped Coin. Featuring bright colors and fine sculpting, this coin comes prepared for display in a luxury box packaging with the further protection of an acrylic capsule, ready to be shown as part of any collection. JM Bullion fully insures your shipment and includes a Certificate of Authenticity that gives each coin’s unique serial number.
The coin’s reverse side comprises a shaped Chibi portrait of a Templar Knight arrayed for battle in his signature white tunic and red cross, bearing a helmet and shield that each carry crosses of their own.
Despite its shape, this coin is in fact legal tender of Niue: the obverse side features a classic effigy of Queen Elizabeth II as designed by Ian Rank-Broadley and seen on British Commonwealth circulation coinage. It also carries the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “2022,” “2 DOLLARS,” and “1 oz 999 Fine Silver.”
