King Leonidas is depicted in the obverse design of Silver Molon Labe Rounds. Leonidas volunteered his force of 300 elite Spartans to be the spearhead in a delaying action against the Persian Army at the hells gates in Thermopylae. He knew in advance that this was a battle he would not likely win, but he was willing to give his life to save the city-states of Greece. In this 10th design, the battle is turning against Sparta as a severely wounded King Leonidas staggers amidst a field of dead Spartans with countless arrow wounds to his body. The inscription on this side read MOLON LABE.
For the reverse field of 1 oz Silver Molon Labe Rounds, the mint offers its logo at the very center. The central field has a column-like I as the logo for the mint, with inscriptions around it of INTAGLIO MINT. This is all within the inner circle and has its own beaded border. The larger background field has a swirling pattern with inscriptions around the outer edge of the design field reading ONE TROY OUNCE, .999 FINE SILVER, and the Roman numerals MMXXII for 2022.
The Battle of Thermopylae was part of a larger conflict between the Greek city-states and the invading Persian Empire. The Greek force at Thermopylae was led by King Leonidas of Sparta and his 300 elite warriors, but he also had 7,000 supporting Greek troops. However, this was nothing compared to the estimated 100,000-to-150,000 man Persian Army it was facing.
