Warriors of History – Knights Templar 1oz Proof Silver Coin
The Warriors of History – Knights Templar 1oz Proof Silver Coin is the fourth release in this exciting collection celebrating the stories of some of the most legendary warriors in history.
The Knights Templar were established at the time of the Crusades to protect the Christian pilgrims travelling to the Holy Land. Recognisable by a distinctive uniform – a white tunic with an eight-pointed blood-red cross, they pledged to die for their faith.
They assumed greater military duties during the 12th century. Heavily armoured knights on their warhorses would charge at the enemy in an attempt to break opposition lines. They developed a reputation as fierce warriors, becoming a model and inspiration for other military orders.
