Masterpiece 2021 Three Graces Kilo Silver Proof Coin
|The Three Graces: Joy. Beauty. Youth. |
William Wyon’s The Three Graces captured the early 19th Century rebirth of interest in the Classics 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.
In Ancient Greek Mythology The Three Graces are daughters of Zeus and goddesses of festivities:
In his classic coin design Wyon cast the sisters as the nations of England, Scotland and Ireland, decorating their entwined figures with roses, thistles and shamrocks to give us clues to their true identity. They are encircled by the Latin “Foedus Inviolabile’ which translates as ‘unbreakable league’, a motto which holds true to this day.
