Pictorial – New images of the Mint of Poland’s first Great Commanders coin featuring Spartacus

One of the healthy number of new ancient history and mythology coins emanating from the Mint of Poland, Spartacus is the first coin in a new series called Great Commanders. We’ve already posted about this one, but that article relied on the early renders to get across how well the coin had been designed. Thanks to the Mint of Gdansk, we now have some much better images of the final article.

We won’t repeat what we’ve said before, so just take a look at the images and see what a good job the mint has done striking this one. It’s a fine design by Polish artist Beata Kulesza-Damaziak who’s also responsible for such stunning designs as the smash-hit Ares, Trojan Horse, and Achilles coins. Available to buy now, this is a promising debut for what should be an intriguing series. The main distributor is Mennica Gdanska (Mint of Gdansk), so be sure to check them out.

    Is it me or does the Mint of Poland not give their coins a numbered COA?

      This this series is commissioned by a 3rd party. These coins are numbered (etched on their rim), but the certificate does not carry a number.

      You are probably right about their own issued numismatic coins…as I haven’t seen them serialize any yet.
