The Great Engravers
This 10 Oz Silver Proof coin is part of The Royal Mint's sought-after The Great Engravers series. Launched in 2019, The Great Engravers collection celebrates the greatest artists to have worked on British coinage with reissues of their most memorable works. New designs are released annually.
The inaugural issue in The Great Engravers series featured William Wyon's Una and the Lion. The second coin in the series is also the work of the Royal Mint Chief Engraver: a reissue of an extraordinary 1817 pattern crown that never circulated.
The Three Graces
The design shows three female figures, representing Ireland, England and Scotland while also evoking the Three Charities of ancient mythology. Wyon was inspired by the Neoclassical trend in decorative arts, garbing his graces in classical dress. It's a much-admired piece and The Great Engravers reissue is an unmissable chance to own this gorgeous piece.
Wyon's iconic reverse is paired with Jody Clark's portrait of Elizabeth II. The obverse legend flags the face value of this Silver Proof coin which is £10.
Ten Ounce Silver Proof
Your 2020 Three Graces Silver Proof 10 Ounce PF 70 UC First Release is crafted from 312.69 grams of .999 Fine Silver and has a diameter of 65.00 millimetres. As legal tender this silver coin is Capital Gains Tax exempt.
This Three Graces coin has been struck to Proof standard. That means that it has been struck up to six times using hand-finished dies, reproduced from Wyon's originals.
