INSURED SHIPMENT / OWN COLLECTION

Set consisting of two coins from the "Sea Battles" series. Buying the coins in a set saves you 295 PLN!

 

1. The Battle of Salamis is amazing in its details! The reverse of the coin features a high relief with a beautiful engraving showing Greek troops battering the Persian fleet. The whole is surrounded by a typical Greek pattern. On the top of the coin there is an insert from lapacho wood. This is one of the hardest species of exotic wood. The inset features an image of a dolphin, and for good reason. For the ancient Greeks dolphins were a symbol of providence, helping ships to overcome the waves. People regarded them as messengers of the gods. 

The obverse of the coin, on the other hand, depicts the movement of troops involved in the Persian War.

 

2. The Battle of Midway was struck from two ounces of pure silver and is stunning in its detailing. The reverse of the coin is decorated in high relief with a beautiful engraving depicting a battle that took place on and over the Pacific Ocean. The top of the coin features an insert in the form of...a moving propeller! This innovative approach helps to highlight the role of aviation in this important battle, which marked a turning point in the Pacific War.

The obverse of the coin, on the other hand, depicts the movement of the troops involved in the war.
