The Intaglio Mint has issued its Molon Labe Series for several years now, with new obverse designs issued on each release of the collection. With the release of its seventh design iteration, Intaglio Mint continues to catalog the moments and confrontations from the Battle of Thermopylae. Right now, you can buy 1 oz Silver Molon Labe Rounds online from Provident Metals.
With your purchase of 1 oz Silver Molon Labe Rounds in this Provident Metals listing, you will receive silver rounds with the seventh design in the Molon Labe Series from the Intaglio Mint. The rounds are packaged individually inside of plastic flips, while multiples are available inside acrylic tubes of 20 rounds.
The obverse side of Silver Molon Labe Rounds features a depiction of a Spartan warrior charging bravely into battle against the Persian Army. In this design, the soldier is running headlong into the Persians using his spear to run through the chest of a Persian as he knees another in the face. He protects himself from any counterattacks using his shield. The inscription on this side reads MOLON LABE.
On the reverse field of 1 oz Silver Molon Labe Rounds, you will find the seal of the Intaglio Mint. The mint logo features a column at the center that has INTAGLIO MINT and EST. 2010 around the logo. The background field behind this has a swirling pattern of radial lines. The outer rim comes with inscriptions of ONE TROY OUNCE, .999 FINE SILVER, and two inscriptions of MMXXI. The rounds in this series are date marked with Roman numerals.
The Battle of Thermopylae was fought over the course of three days in 480 BC. The Persian Army was invading Greece for the second time in a decade in an attempt to wipe out the city-states that formed the Greek Empire. The Persians had the superior force with more than 150,000. King Leonidas volunteered himself and 300 of his elite Spartan warriors to go to the hot gates at Thermopylae and fight to the death to delay the Persian advance while the rest of the Greek city-states gathered an army.
