2017 Niue $2 Warriors of History - Zulus Fine Silver Coin (No Tax)

Human history is filled with stories of legendary warriors, who fought and conquered their enemies through the skillful use of weapons and superior battle tactics.

Shaka Zulu may be one of the greatest military leaders in African history. Tired of the throwing spear (assegai), he introduced a heavy stabbing spear (the iklwa); the "buffalo horns" military formation; and a large shield made of "colour coded" cowhide so soldiers knew exactly where to go when forming the "buffalo horns".

This attack formation brought many Zulu warriors efficiently into hand to hand combat and, along with the iklwa and shield, proved devastating to their enemy.

The Warriors of History – Zulus 1oz Silver Coin is the ninth coin to be released in this fascinating collection, which brings alive the stories of some of the most legendary warriors in history.

This stunning coin features a coloured illustration of a Zulu warrior ready for battle. He stands against an antique-finished, engraved background featuring rampaging Zulus.

This coin comes presented in a sleek and stylish themed rectangular coin case, with textured cover. Inside the coin case is the uniquely numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

With only 5,000 coins in the mintage, you'll want to order yours soon. It also makes a great gift for anyone interested in history.
