At The Royal Mint, tradition has long gone hand in hand with innovation. Inspired by myths and legends, our new gold coin collection explores the enchanting stories that have been passed down through generations and are still celebrated today. One of the finest gold coin series of recent years, the Myths and Legends series has taken the Royal Mint's precious metals offering to a whole new level of popularity.
The collection first explores the story of Robin Hood, which began with the legend itself, and now focuses on his adventurous and quick-witted companion, Maid Marian. Sometimes described as a woman of stature, but always a woman of the people, Maid Marian is said to have gathered valuable information that informed Robin Hood and his band of merry men on their adventures in Sherwood Forest. Another coin inspired by the story will follow, featuring Robin Hood's trusted companion Little John.
The servant Marian has been depicted in a design by Jody Clark, standing watchful amongst the greenery of Sherwood Forest, stealthily observing through the trees with a bow and quiver of arrows on her back, ready for action. Struck in 999.9 fine gold, each one-ounce coin is finished to The Royal Mint standard and is also available as a one-ounce silver edition.
