Royal Mint Myths And Legends Coins
The Myths & Legends collection is a new range of investment coins from the UK's national mint. The coins in this range come in 999.9 gold and 999 silver and are inspired by British folklore. The collection combines stories passed down through the generations with The Royal Mint's innovative, modern minting techniques to create highly-collectable bullion pieces.
The first group of coins in this new series celebrates Robin Hood and his merry men. The legendary outlaw who takes from the rich and gives to the poor has been the subject of plays, ballads and Hollywood movies, following his exploits in Sherwood Forest. The first Myths and Legends coins were issued in 2021 featuring Robin Hood himself with Little John and Maid Marian coins issued the following year.
Future releases will delve into the stories of King Arthur and Beowulf.
