The 2010 Roman Legionary 1 oz Silver Proof Coins by the Perth Mint are the first coin in the Great Warrior Series. Only 5,000 of these coins were minted, and each come with a numbered certificate of authenticity and a presentation display case. The coins are issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu, a Polynesian Island. Four coins were released in this series: a Roman Legionary, a Viking Warrior, a Knight, and a Samurai Warrior. All coins in the series weigh 31.135 grams, have a diameter of 40.60 mm, and a thickness of 4.00 mm. Each proof quality coin is 1 oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.
The obverse features the profile of Queen Elizabeth II, and the reverse is honored to hold the portrait of a Roman Legionnaire, in full battle dress. His outfit even includes the "galea," a metal helmet with cheek guards, and "cuirass," which is body armor made of overlapping iron plates. These famous warriors of Rome created one of the ancient world's most formidable empires, with territory stretching from Hadrian's Wall in North England to the port city of Alexandria in North Africa.
