One more striking coin dedicated to a famous warlord the world has ever seen – Lyu Bu! It is an iconic 2 oz ancient world coin depicts a military general and warlord who lived during the late Eastern Han dynasty of Imperial China.
In history, Lyu Bu is remembered as an exceptionally mighty and at the same time a notorious warrior for his temperamental behaviour. The reason is that he often switched allegiances erratically and freely betrayed his allies and was noted for his poor planning and management skills. He was always suspicious of others and could not control his subordinates. All these factors ultimately led to his downfall.
The obverse is a common one to the series, but it’s worth mentioning that although it’s a Niue coin with the requirement to carry the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, the mint has gone to great pains to theme out this face fully – quite successfully. The packaging is a wooden box with a themed sleeve, and there is a Certificate of Authenticity which will tell you which of the 500 mintage you have.
This astonishing coin can become a superb addition to your numismatic collection!
