The Molon Labe collection of silver rounds now stands at a total of four different images. Each one captures a different scene from the famed Battle of Thermopylae. The battle itself took place over the course of three days during the second Persian invasion of Greece and occurred simultaneously with a naval battle at Artemisium. The Greeks made a valiant last stand on land in a losing effort, but emerged victorious in the naval encounter.
All 1 oz Molon Labe Silver Rounds in this listing are available to you with brand-new condition with impressive visuals. The rounds are individually housed inside of protective plastic flips or inside of tubes of up to 20 rounds.
On the obverse side of the 1 oz Molon Labe Silver Round listed here is the image of a Spartan warrior. This brave soldier stands solitary amidst the battlefield chaos as he lifts a spear in his right hand that he hopes will hit its mark when he thrusts it up toward the war elephant and the Persian soldiers occupying its tower.
The reverse of these Molon Labe Silver Rounds includes the Intaglio Mint seal in the center. It is surrounded in the background by a radial sunburst element and the border has a stippled finish with the weight, purity, and metal content.
The Greek army that came together at Thermopylae consisted of some 7,000 men from a coalition of Greek city-states. King Leonidas and his 300 Spartan warriors were the anchors of this force as he personally led the warriors into battle. The Persian Army they faced was alleged to have numbered one million fighters by ancient authors, but modern scholars believe the figure to have been closer to 100,000 to 150,000. One of the most fearsome tools in their arsenal was the war elephant that struck fear in the heart of opposing forces by their sheer size.
