Arthurian legend is woven into the folklore of our island nation; yet centuries after Arthur’s time, literary invention is more easily discovered than historic fact. In these medallic masterpieces, Lee R Jones evokes both truth and allegory, portraying the warrior King in triumph as well as the humbled man at the point of his ultimate defeat.
Royal Mint Engraver Lee R Jones has brought both the power and the pathos of Arthurian legend to life in these highly detailed engravings. Each one has been immaculately struck, to ensure that every nuance of these true masterpieces stands out in high relief. The accompanying booklet features a wealth of scholarly insights from eminent historians Sean Davies and Karen Jankulak.
The obverse of the medal depicts Arthur as a Warrior King defeating the Saxons as Merlin stands in the background. The battlefield is shown with mist and smoke rising into the air and the dragon flags planted by the cavalry symbolizing victory. The reverse depicts Arthur as a wounded and defeated King offering his sword Excalibur to his Knight Bedivere. In the background appear Arthur’s wife Guinevere embracing Lancelot and Arthur’s half-sister Morgana holding her staff with a raven atop.
Each coin comes in its original box and is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
