SPARTACUS REVIEW - Slave Revolt - Great Commanders - 2 Oz Silver Coin - Niue 2017

Hi Dears, it’s Chiara, and welcome or welcome back to Power Coin’s Blog!

When we attended the World Money Fair last February, I was able to admire the beautiful silver "Spartacus" and today it's finally in my hand!

This marvelous 2 Oz Silver Coin is the first issue in the new “Great Commanders” series dedicated to some of the greatest commanders in history.

SPARTACUS REVOLT

Who was Spartacus?

Spartacus was a Thracian gladiator who was one of the escaped slave leaders in the Third Servile War, a major slave uprising against the Roman Republic.
Little is known about Spartacus beyond the events of the war, and surviving historical accounts are sometimes contradictory and may not always be reliable. However, all sources agree that he was a former gladiator and an accomplished military leader.
This rebellion, interpreted by some as an example of oppressed people fighting for their freedom against a slave-owning oligarchy, has provided inspiration for many political thinkers and has been featured in literature, television, and film. 

The Reverse

The reverse of the coin features Spartacus fighting on his horse followed by the Roman army.
Some details of the coin are emphasized by Red-Gold plating to reproduce the blood poured in battle.
On the bottom part of the reverse, the inscription: “SPARTACUS” – the name of the coin.
I really appreciate the prestigious of this antique finish quality and you?
