Fans of distinctive bullion collections, folktales, and the legendary stories of the Medieval Era have something fun to look forward to in the months ahead. In August 2021, the new Medieval Legends Series launched with a plan for seven distinct designs honoring some of the larger-than-life figures praised in Medieval Era folktales. The first release of this new series, the Robin Hood Round, is now available at Provident Metals and offers reason to be excited about the series as a whole.
Rounds in the Medieval Legends Series
In the all-new Robin Hood Round release at Provident Metals, you will find that the Medieval Legends Series offers two options. You can purchase each one of the seven planned designs in this collection in silver and copper, with the debut release offering 1 oz Silver Medieval Legends Robin Hood Rounds and 1 oz Copper Medieval Legends Robin Hood Rounds. All subsequent designs in the series will come with these options.
Obverse Design Element
The obverse field of Medieval Legends Robin Hood Rounds features the hooded archer. He is shown in the design wielding his preferred weapon, a bow and arrow. He is shown in a front-facing relief as he draws an arrow back in his bow and prepares to fire at his target. The lush surroundings of Sherwood Forest feature throughout the background field behind his figure. Along the right side of the design edge, you will see his name inscribed as ROBIN HOOD.
Common Reverse Design
On the reverse side of all Silver and Copper Medieval Legends Rounds, you will find the same design. Throughout the series, the collection will feature the tools of a Medieval writer and some items for inspiration. There is a humble wooden table in the foreground with an apple and chalice for sustenance for the individual jotting down the tales of Medieval folk heroes. The design element includes an ink well, quill, and parchment for the writer to tell the tale of Robin Hood, and others, as well as some weapons, to inspire the thoughts of the writer. The room featured is set in a Medieval Era castle with stone walls and a stained glass window. Inscriptions on this field read either ONE OUNCE .999 FINE COPPER or ONE OUNCE .999 FINE SILVER, depending on the version of the round.
Background on Robin Hood
Somewhere between truth and fiction, the story of Robin Hood emerged during the Middle Ages in England. There is no written record of a Robin Hood figure from England during this period, but that hasn’t stopped people from creating a story surrounding the legend of the bandit of Sherwood Forest. His tale has been told and retold countless times over the centuries, with certain details and characters coming and going from the story. What remains consistent is that Robin Hood is a crusader for the most vulnerable population within England, the poor. Distraught at the overtaxing of the people by local tax collectors and the Crown, Robin takes to Sherwood Forest to hideout and fights back by robbing the rich to give back to the poor.
Beautiful Provident Metals Collector’s Box
