Hannibal – The First Release in the ‘Masters of War’ Series

The “Hannibal” 2 oz Silver coin is the first issue in the ‘Masters of War’ series, encapsulating the historical saga of one of the most ingenious military commanders of antiquity.

Hannibal Barca (247-183 BCE) was a Carthaginian general celebrated for his audacious crossing of the Alps with war elephants during the Second Punic War against Rome. Renowned for his military tactics, he won notable victories like the Battle of Cannae. Often depicted with a lost eye, symbolizing his sacrifices, Hannibal’s legacy represents both the pinnacle of Carthaginian resistance against Rome and the epitome of strategic brilliance in warfare.

The coin’s reverse offers a dynamic representation of Hannibal, captured in a moment of resolute command as he leads his men and war elephants through the daunting passages of the Alps. The design brings to life the arduous expedition that has become a symbol of strategic tenacity and bold warfare.

The obverse details a series of embattled scenes, chronicling the fierce encounters that Hannibal and his army faced on their legendary march en route to their destination. This reflects the calculated bravery and indomitable will that cemented Hannibal’s status as one of the most revered military minds in history.

With this coin, collectors hold not just a piece of silver but a fragment of history, honoring the legacy of Hannibal, who remains a symbol of military genius and determination.
