2022 brings the third issue in the hit Assassin Series, now dedicated to the group who are thought to be the first organized assassination unit, “The Secarii”. This exciting release once again takes advantage of Poland Mint’s best selling coin specs: 2 troy ounces of pure silver with 45 mm in diameter struck with exceptional high relief details. Top it all off with discreet gold applications and a deep antique finish, this is sure to be another immediate sellout.
The Sicarii were a offset group of the Jewish Zealots who, in the decades preceding Jerusalem’s destruction in 70 CE, strongly opposed the Roman occupation of Judea and attempted to expel them and their sympathizers from the area. The Sicariis’ choice of weapon, the sicae (small daggers) were easily concealed in their cloaks. Masters of blending in at public gatherings, they used these daggers to attack Romans and alleged Roman supporters alike, then melted into the crowds to escape detection.
