Achilles. The hero of Homer's Iliad. The mythical hero of the Trojan War. The slayer of Hector - Troy's greatest Warrior.

Well known to all in modern times, the mythical Achilles was a tremendous leader, warrior, and a hero of the Greeks' war with Troy. Today, in contrast to his great deeds, Achilles is perhaps best known for giving his name to the term "Achilles Heel", meaning a weakness on an otherwise invulnerable target. Contrary to that though, Achilles' mythical feats were great, were central to the story of the city of Troy, and have given him eternal renown.

Perhaps Achilles' greatest moment is immortalised on this impressive 2oz silver coin - the slaying of the Trojan, Hector. Featuring a snapshot of Hector's final moments, at the end of Achilles' blade, this 2oz silver coin features astonishingly high relief. In fact, we would be hard pushed to name any other series currently featuring such amazing high quality! 

Not content with Ultra High Relief, the producers of this masterpiece, have also added a piece of haematite in the centre of Hector's fallen shield!

Limited to just 650 coins worldwide, Achilles is approaching a sell out. Our close relationship with the producer means we have a handful to offer... but they will not last! How can they???
