  • The Spartan Army was a force to be reckoned with in the ancient world. No army in Ancient Greece was better trained, more experienced, and built for war like Sparta’s army. Young Spartan men were trained from as young as 4 or 5 to fight and this resulted in an army that seemed invincible at times. The defiant attitude of the Spartans is the inspiration for the Molon Labe collection from Intaglio Mint. The 2 oz Molon Labe Silver Round Type II is now available to you for purchase online from JM Bullion. Round Highlights: Rounds arrive inside of protective plastic flips or mint tubes of 10! Type II design issued in the Molon Labe collection from Intaglio Mint! Contains 2 Troy oz of .999 pure silver. On the obverse, the Spartan Army lines up for battle with a fearsome leader at the front. The reverse side includes the mint logo of Intaglio Mint. The phrase molon labe roughly translates into English as “having come, take.” It is more commonly translated into English today as “come and take them.” The phrase was recorded in history as coming from the mouth of King Leonidas, the leader of an outnumbered Spartan force at the Battle of Thermopylae. Offered a chance to lay down his arms and live, Leonidas was not about to sell out his fellow Greeks by allowing the numerically superior Persian force to pass without a fight. He responded to the offer by telling the Persian leader that his weapons were in his soldiers hands, gesturing toward his lines he said: “come and take them.” The obverse design field of the 2 oz Molon Labe Silver Round Type II includes a design that showcases the powerful phalanx formation of the Spartans. With their physically imposing leader at the front, the Spartans line up shoulder to shoulder. Their shields protect themselves and the man next to them, providing a near-impenetrable barrier. From behind this wall, the Spartans would thrust their spears forward to stab down their enemies. They would then advance the wall, stabbing and moving to cut down enemy combatants.
