Channel the lasting glory of the legendary warrior culture of Sparta with this new 3oz Gilded Silver coin from Cook Islands! The Spartans were known for their seemingly invincible army and incredibly skilled wariors armed with long spears, swords, and round shields made of bronze and wood. Their fearsome reputation led to an almost mythological-level of fighting abilities being rumored in the thousands of years that have passed. These incredible rumors were surely rooted in their impressive victory over their rival city-state of Athens in the Peloponnesian War from 431-404 B.C.E., which has led Sparta to be known as the most powerful state in Ancient Greece ever since.
This 2023 Cook Island $20 Sparta 3oz High Relief Gilded Silver coin is an incredible homage to Ancient Greece, with a very limited mintage of just 888 pieces! The obverse features a scene from "The Return of Helen on a Quadriga" and a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, and the partially gilded reverse shows Spartan soldiers protecting Helen of Troy. This piece in particular has a PR70DCAM by PCGS and the First Day of Issue pedigree. Only 135 out of the already low mintage exist with this perfect grade and pedigree. Make your collection feel powerful with this piece today!
