At the end of the Napoleonic Wars, the British Government announced the Great Recoinage of 1816 to restabilise the currency. A competition was launched to find designs for these new coins, which included an entry from a young Assistant Engraver called William Wyon; The Three Graces.

While Wyon’s design did not win the competition, around 50 test ‘Pattern Pieces’ were produced which showcased his design in its full glory and went on to become highly valued collectors’ items as William’s output flourished.

Wyon’s most famous designs were produced during the reign of Queen Victoria. His ‘Young Head’ portrait of the new Queen first went into circulation in 1838 while his Una and the Lion is one of history’s most beautiful coin designs and a firm favourite of collectors of East India Company Bullion.

The Three Graces remains an early marker from a remarkable career and is available to collectors once again as the first issue in our Masterpiece Collection. This strictly limited-edition silver 5oz coin creates an impressive canvas for Wyon’s design and is delivered in a presentation case accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity.

Monnaie de Paris pays tribute to the major masterpieces of French museums or having been painted in France.



The obverse represent Salvador Dali's famous masterpiece "The Persistence of Memory". The "Museum Masterpiece" stamp that defines this series has been added at the bottom right and blends with the work. In the background, the front of Beaubourg, where Salvador Dali has been the subject of several exhibitions, most recently in 2013, has been depicted. The name of the work and that of the artist also complete the decoration. The year 2021 appears on the left.



The reverse is common to the series. It depicts several views of many major French museums. An interior view of the Musée d’Orsay, on the top left, is recognizable by its distinctive clock. Beside that is a view of the façade of the Louvre as seen from the Napoleon courtyard where the pyramid is located. Below these two elements, a fresco shows the Hôtel Salé, which houses the Picasso Museum. The lower portion of the reverse side features a view of the façade of Hôtel Biron, the current Rodin Museum, and above, the famous Centre Pompidou stairway. The face value and the words “République Française” are also inscribed on the reverse side.

Shortly after the death of Emperor Xian Feng in 1861, his concubine Cixi assumed control and ruled China as The Empress Dowager. Cixi was able to read, a rare skill at that time, and educated herself on domestic and foreign affairs, creating policies that would modernise China’s culture and economy. Recognising the importance of making international trade as easy as possible she instigated changes in customs, weights and measures that enabled the creation of a standardised ‘Dragon’ Trade Dollar.

Trade Dollars had been used to facilitate international trade since the ‘Spanish Dollars’ of the 15th Century, and the first ‘Dragon’ Trade dollars were struck in 1889 with the coin’s weight in English lettering sitting beneath a traditional Chinese dragon. Now, the Chinese Trade Dollar is reimagined for 2021 by The East India Company, our stunning Proof finish emphasising every detail of a new design that features a mighty dragon encircling the globe.

This limited-edition silver 1oz coin is presented in a luxurious presentation case along with a booklet and numbered certificate of authenticity.

Hephaestus‘ correspondence with Libra is derived from his role as the smith god. By crafting fire, he made the weapons that the gods use to impose justice, down to the scales of Dike, the goddess of justice, often thought to be the woman depicted in the sign. As just, Hephaestus is a god of innovation, taming the chaos of the flames to produce items to impose civilization.
