Sparta was the central cog in a collection of Greek city-states. Tradition dictates that the Spartan legislator Lycurgus was the founder of the iconic Spartan army. It was his belief that Sparta needed only a “wall of men, instead of bricks” to protect themselves. He reformed the society of Sparta to focus on a military lifestyle.
On the obverse of 1 oz Spartan Warrior Copper Rounds is the image of a strong, physically dominating Spartan warrior. He wears a cape over his shoulders with a Corinthian helmet on his head and a shield in his left hand. As he leaps toward his enemy, he wields a long spear and is ready to drive it through his opponent.
Spartan men were taken from the age of 6 into military training. Their whole lives revolved around mental and physical preparation for war. It is even said that the only time Spartan men weren’t training for war was when they were away fighting a war. From the 6th to 4th centuries BC, no army on Earth was as disciplined and skilled as that of Sparta.
The reverse face of 1 oz Spartan Warrior Copper Rounds includes the front-facing view of a Corinthian helmet. The helmet’s design is crisscrossed by numerous weapons that were commonly used by Spartans on the field of battle. This includes the Dory spear Spartans would employ from behind their phalanx shield walls, the Xiphos short sword common in hand-to-hand combat, and a battle ax.
