2016 Niue $2 Warriors of History - Vikings Silver Proof Coin minted by the New Zealand Mint (TAX Exempt)

Human history is filled with stories of legendary warrior people, who fought and conquered their enemies through the skillful 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.

New Zealand Mint is pleased to introduce the second coin in this exciting collection, the Warriors of History - Vikings 1 oz Silver Coin.

The Warriors of History coin collection brings alive the stories of some of the most legendary warriors in history. This stunning coin reverse shows a coloured illustration of a Viking warrior in full battle-gear. He stands against an engraved coastal background showing two longships and Viking warriors ready for battle.

This high impact, colourful and partly-engraved coin comes presented in a sleek and stylish themed rectangular coin case, with textured cover. The uniquely numbered Certificate of Authenticity sits inside the coin case. With a mintage of only 5,000 coins, this Warriors of History - Vikings 1 oz Silver Coin would make an excellent gift for coin collectors and those interested in history.
