Brought to you by The Royal Mint. As part of the esteemed Myths and Legends series, this coin is a celebration of the influential figures that shaped the British mythical landscape, and no character is more significant than Merlin, the legendary sorcerer and confidante to King Arthur.
Born from the union of a mortal woman and a demon father, Merlin’s extraordinary magical abilities have captured imaginations for centuries. This 1oz gold coin immortalizes Merlin in exquisite detail, capturing the mystical aura that surrounds him.
In the coin’s striking design, Merlin is shown holding a magic stave, a symbol of his potent magical powers, and a golden sickle, traditionally used for the sacred act of cutting mistletoe. Perched on Merlin’s shoulder is a wise owl, a token of the wisdom that guided King Arthur and his knights. Looming in the background is the iconic Glastonbury Tor, said to be the inspiration for the mythical island of Avalon, further enhancing the coin’s connection to the enchanting tales of Arthurian lore.
Crafted from one troy ounce of 999.9 fine gold, the 2023 Merlin Myths & Legends Gold Coin is a masterpiece of minting. Struck to The Royal Mint’s stringent bullion standard, each coin exhibits a fine blend of precision and craftsmanship, ensuring a product of the highest quality.
Why buy 1 oz gold coins?
Like any other gold coin, 1oz gold Myths & Legends coins are VAT free both in Great Britain.
One ounce gold coins are popular in the gold bullion market. They are a great way to split your precious metal holdings into smaller fractions. In fact, a large gold bar is not always the best option.
Buying 1 ounce gold bullion coins makes your investment more divisible and liquid. You can resell a few gold coins when you need cash, instead of selling a whole bar at once. Therefore, it is worth paying a slightly higher premium.
