This incredible 2 oz ultra-high relief fine silver coin from the Polish Mint features the Middle Eastern Nizari killers. Nizari killers were the first group to employ assassinations for political purposes.

The word murderer has its origin in Syria, where the Shiite Islamic sect, the Ismaili nizaris, employed a group of assassins to ensure their survival and keep their enemies at bay. Nizari killers carried out their murders in public to instill fear. Their operations were very effective and became synonymous with ruthless killers. The identity of his killers remained anonymous.

The reverse side of the coin shows an image of three nizari assassins in ancient Arab dress, with golden swords and knives, with their faces veiled with traditional Arab bandanas. Nizari Castle, known as the castle of Death, appears in the background of the assassins. The reverse includes the inscriptions "assassins" and "نزاريون", the Arabic word for Nizaris.

The obverse shows an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, by Rank Broadley. The queen's profile is centered and surrounded by Arabic-style architectural tracery and two swords.

This coin is crafted in pure .999 silver with an incredible antique finish. It has a limited coinage of only 999 pieces worldwide, with 500 coins already reserved for fans of the subject, history, games and characters.

Limited minting will make this unique coin a rare collectible coin.
