INSURED SHIPMENT / OWN COLLECTION

The second coin from "Isle of Man" series.

After the success of the coin "Manannan, the First King of Man" CIT presents the next instalment of a coin associated with interesting rulers.

As a continuation of the extremely successful issue of the 3 ounces of silver of the Isle of Man Manannan, CIT is proud to present a coin with the image of the highest warrior queen.

Boudika was the queen of the Icenas living in Eastern Britain. Taking advantage of the absence of the Roman governor of Great Britain, Svetonius Paulinus, around 60 A.D., she stirred up an uprising against the Romans, thus responding to the wave of terror and humiliation that the Icenas experienced after the death of her husband Prasutagus. She was very tall and looked very dangerous. She looked severe, and spoke in a shabby way. The wonderful hair was flowing down her hips. She wore a wonderful golden necklace around her neck and a multi-coloured tunic. On this thick coat she tied up with a brooch. When she spoke, she grabbed the spear to scare the viewers even more.

This valiant queen is still an icon in England. The monument to Boudika, depicting her on the chariot with her two daughters, was created in the 19th century and stands today at the Westminster Bridge. It is one of the most famous symbols of London.

The coin was struck from 3 ounces of pure silver and its antique finish adds character. The reverse of the coin shows the queen proudly wearing her battle suit with an axe in her hand.
