The Royal Mint launches an exciting new series with their first release of a new 'Myths & Legends' series celebrating great figures from British folklore.
The first coin in the series features Robin Hood, the iconic British outlaw of Sherwood forest designed by The Royal Mint's Jody Clarke. This design shows Robin Hood surrounded by foliage and balanced on a tree bough with his bow drawn and aimed. The Queens portrait on the obverse has been a feature of Royal mint coins since its launch in 2015.
The Robin Hood gold coin is 24-carat (or 999.9 purity) and contains exactly one ounce of gold.
The Royal Mint have announced that this coin will be followed by coins featuring Little John and Maid Marian from the same tales. Judging by the series name 'Myths and Legends' we can perhaps expect this coin to be the first in a major new line from the mint.
