The origins of the Holy Grail legend can be traced back to medieval literature, specifically the tales of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. In these Arthurian legends, the Grail is often depicted as a vessel of immense power, possessing miraculous properties and the ability to provide nourishment and healing. Over time, various interpretations and embellishments have been woven into the tapestry of Grail lore, blending Christian symbolism with Celtic mythology and ancient folklore. As the tales spread across Europe, the quest for the Holy Grail became synonymous with personal transformation, moral virtue, and the search for hidden wisdom. Today, the legend of the Holy Grail continues to fascinate and intrigue, serving as a testament to the enduring power of myth and the eternal yearning for something greater than ourselves. As the sixth release in the Medieval Legends Series, the Holy Grail Round is sure to excite!
On the obverse side of the 1 oz Silver and 1 oz Copper Medieval Legends Holy Grail Rounds, you will find a detailed new design featuring the coveted Holy Grail. Starting in the background, you’ll notice that human skulls form the wall at the back of this unknown room. In the middle ground, a powerful, armored knight stands with a staff in one hand and a shield in the other that features a heraldic lion. In the foreground, your eye is drawn to the simple image of the Holy Grail resting on a pedestal. The inscription on this side includes only HOLY GRAIL.
In the reverse design of the Medieval Legends Holy Grail Grounds, the series continues with its use of the common design element. While this design seems simple in nature, offering a view of a table with various items, there is actually an important message in the appearance of these items. Each item on the table is a relic representing the figures that have or will later feature in the Medieval Legends Series. This includes the image of the Holy Grail. Inscriptions on this side read either ONE TROY OUNCE .999 FINE SILVER or ONE OUNCE .999 FINE COPPER.
All rounds in the Medieval Legends Series come with individual flips for shipping. If you purchase multiples, the rounds are available in protective tubes of 20 or boxes of 500 rounds. The silver and copper rounds are both 1 oz pieces with .999 purity.
