THE SECOND COIN IN THE QUEEN’S VIRTUES SIX COIN COLLECTION

The second coin in this magnificent series represents Truth, the principle of being and acting truthfully. The allegorical personification of Truth is depicted as a glad-winged figure, holding a mirror in her right arm, symbolic of self-truth. Between her stands a childbearing a palm-branch, whom she comforts demonstrating the role of us all to protect the innocent.

Taking its inspiration from the allegorical figure of the virtue of Truth as depicted on the Victoria Memorial situated outside Buckingham Palace, our second design in the series features the words

VINCIT OMNIA VERITAS
(Truth Conquers All)

 

Details-

The allegorical presentation of the Queen’s six virtues was first presented on the Victoria Memorial, situated outside Buckingham Palace. Designed after Queen Victoria’s death in 1901, The Winged Angel of Victory is featured at the very top of the monument and crouched at her feet are the allegorical figures of Courage and Constancy. Courage wears a helmet and bears a club, while Constancy holds a ship’s compass, and both have cloaks swirling out in the breeze.

Beneath stand personifications of Justice, Truth and Charity.
Designed and sculpted by Sir Thomas Brock, he described the symbolism of the monument as devoted to the

“qualities which made our Queen so great and so much beloved. “

This innovative and thought-provoking collection is released in tribute of the ‘Virtues of a Queen’. Virtues which, in all our lives, remain as important as ever. Issued over three years in gold and silver, the collection features the allegorical personifications of

VICTORY, TRUTH, CHARITY, JUSTICE, COURAGE AND CONSTANCY

THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE DESIGN – TRUTH
Our SECOND DESIGN in the series, the Truth coin features the allegorical representation of Truth in 1oz Silver Proof Coin with Selective Gold Plate. It is said that the Victorian Era set the foundation for the basic principle and importance of being and acting truthfully as a core virtue and can be directly attributed to Queen Victoria herself.In more modern times Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is known to have a compelling sense of herself as a spiritual being who is the searcher and the seeker of truth.
