Masterpiece 2021 Three Graces 1oz Gold Proof Coin
|The Three Graces: Joy. Beauty. Youth. |
In the mythical stories of Ancient Greece, The Three Graces were the daughters of the mighty Zeus, goddesses of Mount Olympus. They represent the good things in life: laughter, festivities, elegance and youthful exuberance.
The early 19th Century saw a renewed interest in the Classics, and William Wyon captured the zeitgeist by using The Three Graces to tell the story of The 1801 Act of Union, which saw the Kingdom of Great Britain and the Kingdom of Ireland combine to form The United Kingdom.
At the mythical sisters’ feet, Wyon placed the national symbols of Scotland, England and Ireland; a thistle, a shield bearing the flag of St George and a harp. He decorated their crowns with shamrocks, roses and further thistles. And around the entwined goddesses he added the motto “Foedus Inviolabile’, meaning ‘unbreakable league’, a motto that holds true to this day as The Three Graces becomes the first issue in our strictly limited-edition Masterpiece Collection.
