The 19th Century is often described as a ‘golden age’ of coin design, and one of its greatest contributors is William Wyon.

As a young Assistant Engraver he entered the competition to design the new coins for the Great Recoinage of 1816 in an effort to further his career. His submission, The Three Graces, elegantly captured renewed interest in Ancient Greece to tell the story of the recent 1801 Act of Union and the creation of the United Kingdom.

While it didn’t win the competition, a small number of test ‘Pattern Pieces’ were produced which became sought-after as his reputation grew. His ‘Young Head’ portrait of Queen Victoria graced the coins of her reign for nearly 50 years, while his ‘Una and The Lion’ is now recognised as one of history’s most beautiful coin designs.

He was a master of his art, and The Three Graces his neoclassic masterpiece. We are proud to make it available to collectors once again as this two-ounce Silver Proof £2 coin, presented in a display case with accompanying booklet and certificate of authenticity.

One of the world’s leading opera, theatre and classical music festivals, the Salzburg Festival celebrates its centenary in 2020. Featuring opera, theatre and classical concerts, the Salzburg Festival offers a broader spectrum of cultural variety than any other. To celebrate this major cultural event, which is constantly in the process of reinventing itself, we have come up with a particularly innovative coin design.

On 22 August 1920, the director Max Reinhardt staged Hugo von Hofmannsthal’s morality play Jedermann in Salzburg’s Domplatz (Cathedral Square) for the first time and in doing so






founded the Salzburg Festival. Since 1926, the play has been a permanent feature of the festival programme, a tradition interrupted only during the Nazi regime. Those who stage or direct Jedermann in Salzburg’s Domplatz have reached the pinnacle of their career.

In addition to Max Reinhardt and Hugo von Hofmannsthal, the composer Richard Strauss was also involved in the founding of this magnificent celebration of the performing arts, which did not take long to become established and achieve world renown. At Salzburg, the best is often not good enough. This gives the festival cultural relevance, which comes from its strength of tradition but also allows new directions to be explored and puts the avant-garde centre stage. This very special centenary coin is avant-garde itself. With an obverse that has the appearance of a plate with a flat inner part, a coin of this type has never been minted before. We believe it does the Salzburg Festival justice.

Born in Brixton, South London, in 1947, David Bowie began life as David Robert Jones. By the time he was 19 he had taken on his iconic name and was taking the first steps in one of the most innovative and influential careers in the history of sound and vision. His music electrified generations, and his perpetual state of reinvention kept music fans enthralled.

The third coin in our Music Legends collection celebrates rock’s definitive chameleon with a design inspired by an image of the singer from his time spent living and recording in Berlin. The inclusion of the lightning bolt motif from the Aladdin Sane era captures Bowie’s career journey, and the moment he finally put aside the props to emerge as an artist in his own right.

Available as limited-edition precious metal Proof editions and a standard Brilliant Uncirculated edition, the Brilliant Uncirculated edition is also available with three different slipcase covers, exclusively available from The Royal Mint and are a fitting tribute to the career of one of British music’s most enduring icons.

Vasa” was a Swedish ship, which was considered the most high-tech warship of those times. The story of what happened to the ship still remains a mystery among experts. Despite being one of the Swedish navy’s biggest achievements, Vasa sank within twenty minutes of setting sail, on this day in 1628. It claims 30 lives.

Engineering problems sank the ship – but this disaster has become a boon for archaeologists. In the XXI century, it was pulled from the bay and 98% of the ship’s original wood was still intact, making it the world’s best-preserved ship.

The remains of the ship can be found in Stockholm’s Vasa Museum. According to the museum, it is the only preserved 17th-century ship in the world, and the museum is a place for historical and anthropological study as well as for visitors from all over the world.

“The most spectacular warship ever built” is beautifully depicted on this coin.
