THE 2021 VICTORY 1OZ GOLD PROOF COIN

STRICTLY LIMITED TO 250 COINS

INTRODUCING THE FIRST COIN IN NEW SIX COIN SERIES

The first coin in this magnificent series represents Victory, perhaps one of the most prominent virtues a Monarch can behold. Defined as the success or triumph of overcoming an enemy, Victory is a key element in both Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II’s reign. Victory signals the end of conflict and a celebration of peace. The Queen as Sovereign is Head of the Armed Forces and is still the only person able to formally declare war and more crucially, an end to conflict.

Inspired by the six virtues found on the Victoria Memorial situated outside Buckingham Palace, our first design in the series features a detailed depiction of the allegorical figure Victory, carrying in her hand the victors palm and surrounded by the text
VICTORIA CONCORDIA CRESCIT
(Victory through Harmony).

Presented in luxury presentation case with booklet and numbered certificate of authenticity

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, especially during unsettled times. 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
Our first DESIGN in the series, the Victory coin features the allegorical representation of Victory.
Victory is said to be the achievement of mastery, success and overcoming an enemy. A key virtue recognised in both Victoria’s and Elizabeth II’s reign Victory holds a position at the very top of the Victoria Memorial monument. In gilded bronze stands a Winged Victory on a globe holding a victor’s palm. The victors palm represents victory, triumph and peace, a symbol originating from the Middle East. In ancient Roman religion, Victoria was a goddess personifying Victory, the Roman’s equivalent of the Greek goddess, Nike.
