Description

The Perth Mint's famous battles in history series portrays battlefield scenes spanning more than two millennia.
These coins focus on five notable engagements that changed the course of history.

The Second coin commemorates Hannibal's crushing defeat of the Roman legions in 216BC. Against a massive force comprising 80,000 infantry and 6,000 cavalry, his outnumbered Carthaginian army won a remarkable victory that has been hailed as one of the greatest tactical achievements in military history.

The Perth Mint has released this 1oz silver proof under the Government of the Tuvalu and has a limited mintage of only 5,000 coins.

The coins design depicts a Carthaginian warrior and one of Hannibal's 30 war elephants, which famously crossed the Alps with his army.

The 1oz silver proof coin comes with a numbered certificate.
