2017 Niue 2 Ounce Great Commanders Spartacus Slave Revolt High Relief Silver Coin
Spartacus is the first coin in a brand new Poland Mint series called “Great Commanders”. Spartacus was an arranger and a leader of the biggest slave uprising in ancient Rome (73-71 p.n.e.). He created an army, which opposed rules of those days but in the end it was fought down by Mark Krassus, Roman chief.
In stunning high relief, Spartacus is shown fighting on his horse with the Roman army. In the background we can see slaves and gladiators assisting his leader. Discreet red gold accents imitating blood on insurgent’s knives adds additional life and realism to the scene.
A map illustrating the precised track of the battles for freedom in Italy and of course, a figure of the Queen Elisabeth II.
