In 2019 the Isle of Man dedicated a spectacular commemorative coin to its eponymous hero, the divine warrior king Manannán. Now, in 2020 this series is continued with Celtic warrior queen Boudica, whose story is known to the whole world today.

Boudica led a revolt in 60/61 AD against the Romans that inhabited her home England. According to historians, she was driven to lead the revolt after the King, her husband, had died and the Romans took over her lands. Her and her family were humiliated by the Romans and she vowed revenge. This Warrior Queen led her forces to overtake three of the largest Roman inhabited cities and was only the final battle away from driving the Romans completely out of England.

Description of the Coin

Wow, yes, Isle of Man has outdone themselves, again. Rare, too. Thanks for sharing Welshstacker.

Those weird shaped coins are my favorite

I was a sucker for that figure 8 coin, from the Perth mint a few years ago. I never got around to buying it because it was like $200 for 3 oz.
