|THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE DESIGN – TRUTH |
Our SECOND DESIGN in the series, the Truth coin features the allegorical representation of Truth.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.
