This stunning, high-relief 2020 Antique Finish coin in the shape of a Celtic Cross will be a showpiece in your collection. Struck in 3 oz. of 99.9% pure silver, the extra-large 5Åí legal tender coin from the Isle of Man depicts Boudica – legendary warrior queen of ancient England who led Celtic tribes in an uprising against Roman provincial forces in A.D. 60/61. Avenging brutal acts and confiscation of her lands by the Romans, her forces conquered three of Rome’s largest settlements in Britain before being defeated. Boudica is celebrated today as a national heroine and an embodiment of the struggle for justice and independence.
The intricate reverse depicts the proud warrior queen decked in her battle gear with axe in hand. The background features an abstract image of a raven – revered since ancient times as a symbol of the British people (ravens today are protected birds at the Tower of London). The obverse depicts Queen Elizabeth II amid beams and rings of the cross featuring Celtic interlace decorations. Just 999 Antique Finish coins were struck and each comes in a display case with a certificate of authenticity. Supplies are limited – order quickly!
