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.

Baibars or Baybars, nicknamed Abu l-Futuh, was the fourth Sultan of Egypt from the Mamluk Bahri dynasty. He was one of the commanders of the Egyptian forces that inflicted a defeat on the Seventh Crusade of King Louis IX of France. He also led the vanguard of the Egyptian army at the Battle of Ain Jalut in 1260, which marked the first substantial defeat of the Mongol army and is considered a turning point in history. The reign of Baibars marked the start of an age of Mamluk dominance in the Eastern Mediterranean and solidified the durability of their military system. He managed to pave the way for the end of the Crusader presence in the Levant and reinforced the union of Egypt and Syria as the region's pre-eminent Muslim state, able to fend off threats from both Crusaders and Mongols. As Sultan, Baibars also engaged in a combination of diplomacy and military action, allowing the Mamluks of Egypt to greatly expand their empire.
