2022 Maid Marian 1oz .999 Silver Bullion Coin – Myths and Legends
Inspired by myths and legends, the Myths and Legends series by The Royal Mint explores enchanting stories that have been passed down through generations and are still celebrated today. The second coin in the series introduces Maid Marian in a modern interpretation by renown artist and engraver Jody Clark.
The collection first explores the story of Robin Hood, which began with the legend himself, and now focuses on his adventurous and quick-witted companion Maid Marian. Sometimes described as a woman of high 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 in their adventures through Sherwood Forest. One more coin inspired by the tale will follow, featuring Robin Hood’s trusted companion Little John.
The reverse of the coin features Maid Marian depicted standing watchful amongst the greenery of Sherwood Forest, stealthily observing through the trees with a bow and a quiver of arrows on her back, poised for action. The inscription ‘MAID MARIAN’, the 2022 year-date, and the weight and purity are also included in the design.
The coin’s obverse bears Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination. The obverse also features a micro-dot table texture.
Each silver bullion coin is presented in a Swan Bullion protective plastic flip. Swan Bullion offers an optional Air-Tite capsule that can be purchased to protect your investment. Multiples of 25 will be provided in a tube with 20 tubes to a monster box (500oz total).
