The Warriors of History series of silver coins is a collaboration between the island nation of Niue and the New Zealand Mint. This brilliantly designed collection honors warriors from around the world that have earned their place in history as they have defended their people, enslaved others and demonstrated just what it means to be a warrior. The 2016 Proof Niue Warriors of History Samurai 1 oz Silver Coin pays tribute to the class of warrior known as the Samurai. Each of the coins in the collection contains 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver and has a face value of $2, fully backed by the government of Niue.
The Samurai are often looked upon as a type of warrior with an aura of mystery around them. These warriors date back to medieval and even early-modern Japan. The Samurai were around during a time when the caste system was still a reality for Japan. This ancient feudal system dictated how someone was to live his or her life, based upon where they were born. Samurai were the military nobility and also the office caste. They were recognized for their exceptional skills during battle, and for their unending devotion to their mission. Samurai were ingrained with a deep sense of honor that would have them opting to rather die while in battle, even if it is at their own hand, than to surrender to their enemy.
The obverse design of the 2016 Proof Niue Warriors of History Samurai 1 oz Silver Coin features the fourth-generation portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Here Her Majesty is pictured in right-profile portrait. Also on the obverse side of the coin is the name of the issuing nation, Niue, the face value of the coin, the year of release and also her Majestys name.
The reverse design of the 2016 Proof Niue Warriors of History Samurai 1 oz Silver Coin features the vibrant colorized image of a Samurai standing on the battlefield, with his hand on his sword. His stance, and his wearing the full traditional Samurai armor would indicate that he is poised to take on his enemies in battle.
Each of the 2016 Proof Niue Warriors of History Samurai 1 oz Silver Coins are shipped securely in a themed Warriors of History box that has vibrantly colored artwork relaying to the Samurai depicted on the coin. Each of the coins is delivered with a Certificate of Authenticity from the New Zealand Mint. The New Zealand Mint is a private mint located in Auckland.
