2022 MOLON LABE TYPE IX, 2 TROY OUNCE

The classic Greek expression "molon labe," which means "come and take it," is thought to have been uttered by the Spartan King Leonidas in response to the Persian forces' demand that their armies surrender their weapons. This ounce of silver artistic medal honors the phrase.

These silver rounds don't come in capsules. I put them in Airtites to protect them from scratches and the elements.

There are a total of twelve shields engraved in this round. Each shield has a different design. The photo doesn't do justice to the excellent workmanship of the coin. Even the back of the round is outstanding.

Slow but surely collecting the Molon Labe series.

If I have a choice in silver rounds, I prefer 2 ozs. It's good that with this series, you have a choice. On the others, it is only available in 1 oz.

Oh wow absolutely beautiful piece and with a great historical addition to it. It is amazing to watch the silver industry develop its own niche. I had no idea about any of it existing

Hi @melbournewest! Click the link to Limited Mintage and Intaglio Mint to check out their products. He is also on Instagram.
There is a whole world of silver out there! I limit myself to bullion coins in gold and silver, and bullion silver.

Fantastic, yeah I am still learning at current and focusing on bullion for investment purposes. I don't think the coin market here in Aus is that great in comparison to other nations.

Yup that was going to be the focus of my next post. I bought a 1/10th gold bullion coin from them. Those coins are good because they do buy back. I believe they also have a gold saver initiative.

Hello @silversaver888 👋🏻😊
Good morning to you in a little while ☀️😉
Nope, I don’t pre schedule them. I normally go through my notifications in the morning. Than I start to multi task with everything else I do in a day hahaha
After lunch I write a post and most of the time I post it in the afternoon. If no work comes in between. If… than it takes a bit longer.
Especially lately, I’m so busy 🤓
But we all do our best, and do show up everyday, so all good. Cheers to us 🍾🥂
Aawww thanks 😊 and a Bigg hugg back 🤗🤗
Have a great day today!
!LADY 🤗🥰🌺🤙🏻

Molon Labe!
Molon Labe has become a rallying cry for 2nd Amendment supporters in America, and proponents of firearms ownership around the world, @tazi!

I feel the same.
We have the best gun law in the Europe here in Czech Rep., but we have to defend it against the EU regulations. "Molon Labe" and "Don't tread on me" are the slogans described my feelings ;)

The "Turtle' formation is also echoed by this imagery used in various versions throughout the history or warfare. My favorite version was the Korean Navy's use of "Turtle" ships and Admiral Yi's effective use against the Invading Japanese Ships.
Anyone seeing a silver coin depicting the Korean Turtle ship on sale, please notify me.

Always, with love 🤗🌺❤️

No significance, @silvertop. Except that they had to engrave it, not being content with simple shields, hehehe 🤣
