Warriors of History – Vikings 1oz Proof Silver Coin
The Warriors of History – Vikings 1oz Proof Silver Coin is the second release in this exciting collection celebrating the stories of some of the most legendary warriors in history.
Human history is filled with stories of legendary warrior people, who fought and conquered their enemies through the skilful use of weapons and their superior battle tactics.
The Vikings were the seafaring people from Scandinavia who lived in the late 8th-11th century. They were known as warriors, traders and global explorers, who discovered the Americas long before Columbus and traded their goods as far as Baghdad.
These fierce pillaging Norsemen, in their silently approaching longships, caused terror across northern Europe with their raids of coastal towns and monasteries. Weapons such as the spear, sword and battle-axe were used in these attacks, aimed at capturing slaves as well as valuable loot.
