Coin Story

When we look back to the past, we see that the courage, bravery, heroism and charisma of great personalities have always aroused not only people’s admiration and respect, but also submission, and even fear. However, such strong characters contributed to the rapid development of the areas they conquered. This is why it is worthwhile to remember the times of great commanders whose deeds and triumphs got down in history. To meet the expectations of numismatic collectors, the Mint of Poland started the “Great Commanders” series under an international program.

Attila, frequently referred to as Attila the Hun, was the ruler of the Huns from 434 until his death in March 453. Attila was a leader of the Hunnic Empire, which stretched from the Ural River to the Rhine River and from the Danube River to the Baltic Sea. During his reign, he was one of the most feared enemies of the Western and Eastern Roman Empires. He crossed the Danube twice and plundered the Balkans, but was unable to take Constantinople. His unsuccessful campaign in Persia was followed in 441 by an invasion of the Eastern Roman Empire, the success of which emboldened Attila to invade the West. He also attempted to conquer Roman Gaul (modern France), crossing the Rhine in 451 and marching as far as Aurelianum (Orléans) before being defeated at the Battle of the Catalaunian Plains. Subsequently he invaded Italy, devastating the northern provinces, but was unable to take Rome. He planned for further campaigns against the Romans but died in 453.
