Limited Edition Silver Proof Coin! Limited Edition of 5000 Only This is 3133! A pivotal encounter of the 5th century BC Greco-Persian Wars, the Battle of Salamis was the first great naval battle recorded in history.

In the aftermath of Salamis, further decisive victories at Plataea and Mycale effectively ended the threat of invasion faced by the world’s first democracy.
