FIRST RELEASE - BATTLE OF SALAMIS 480 BC
A pivotal encounter of Greco-Persian Wars in the 5th century BC, the Battle of Salamis resulted in an improbable victory for the vastly outnumbered ships of the Greek alliance. Greek commander Themistocles devised a brilliant strategy that lured the large Persian fleet into the narrow strait between the island of Salamis and the Athenian port-city of Piraeus. Here the Greek triremes attacked furiously, ramming and boarding the tightly-packed formation of Persian ships which had difficulty turning in the restricted channel.
Estimates put Greek losses as low as 40 ships out of a total of 380. However, much larger Persian fleet suffered greatly, losing hundreds of ships during the battle.

Each coin is housed in a presentation display case and superbly illustrated shipper, accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

The program comprises five coins:

  • Battles of Salamis – 480 BC
  • Battles of Trafalgar – 1805
  • Battles of Hampton Roads – 1862
  • Battles of Jutland – 1916
  • Battles of Midway – 1942
