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.

Lady Bugs have been symbols of luck for over 1000 years! Legend says that the lady bug first gained its “Lucky” status when it kept landing on a man’s neck that was sentenced to be executed by the French guillotine. The man proclaimed his innocence and the Lady Bug kept landing on his neck to distract the executioner. It was seen as a divine intervention and spared the man’s life and later he was proven innocent.

The Lady Bug’s legend grew as European farmers prayed for help from pesky insects and Lady Bugs arrived shortly after. They were named after Virgin Mary and have since been a blessing for generations! Many tales about their famous spots have arisen as a way to tell their age or how many years of good luck you will have.

The silver coin from the Czech Mint´s gift series with motifs of 12 signs of the zodiac will become not only a beautiful, but also a valuable talisman for everyone who was born in the sign of Cancer.

The constellation of Cancer was named after the ancient Greek legend of Heracles, who encountered a hydro and its helper - a huge crayfish, while performing the legendary twelve tasks. Crabs in human form are vulnerable like fragile aquatic crustaceans - they are compassionate, receptive and empathetic, full of emotions. In addition to the stars, they are also ruled by Luna - the Moon, which symbolizes the desire to indulge in feelings and instincts. Cancer life is devoted to helping others, but they are also happy to be cared for. However, both can grow into emotional dependence. Their protective place is usually home and they like creative activities.

The non-traditional oval coin bears a colored image of Cancer on the reverse side. Photographs or computer graphics were not used as a template for coloring - the coin's author, Asamat Baltaev, DiS., created an original watercolor painting. The relief in the background behind Cancer presents a disk with a dozen zodiac signs. The composition of the reverse is supplemented with the Latin inscription CANCER, together with the corresponding astrological symbol. Since the coins of the Czech Mint are licensed by the foreign issuer, the island of Niue, the obverse side bears its national emblem, the nominal value of ONE DOLLAR (NZD) and the year of issue 2021. All this is surrounded by twelve astrological signs.

The coin is stored in an elegant box.

Created by former intelligence officer and author Ian Fleming in 1953, James Bond is a fearless, charismatic and deadly British Secret Service agent with a ‘licence to kill’. Also known by the codename 007, he has been portrayed by six actors – Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig – in 25 thrilling movies released by EON Productions since 1962.

Goldfinger Design
In Goldfinger, released in 1964, gold magnate Auric Goldfinger is planning an audacious attack on the United States Bullion Depository known as Fort Knox. Played by Sean Connery, Bond must prevent the criminal and his henchman Oddjob from irradiating the facility in order to profit from a resultant gold shortage and economic upheaval.

The coin’s reverse depicts a coloured illustration of James Bond and the female character Pussy Galore. Based on an official movie poster, the design also features a hand covered in skin-suffocating gold paint. Included on the reverse are the iconic gun barrel graphic from the franchise’s signature opening sequence, the famous 007 gun logo and the inscription ‘GOLDFINGER’.

Branded Display Packaging
Individual releases from the James Bond Official 25-Coin Collection are each housed in a 007 branded case with a transparent acrylic top and a movie themed shipper. Each coin is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity featuring poster artwork.
