There are few fairy tales with a broader appeal than Robin Hood. Who hasn’t heard the story of the rogue who takes from the rich and gives to the poor? Countless examples of Robin Hood-like figures over the past centuries have helped to cement the hero into the very DNA of Western folklore. Along with his merry band of adventurers, Robin Hood stole gold, silver, and other precious metals from the rich nobles of his society, redistributing the wealth to the many poor folks around him.  Today, Hero Bullion is proud to bring you a coin from the renowned British Royal Mint that commemorates the classic folk tale of Robin Hood. Struck into brilliant .999 pure silver bullion, the 2021 1 Oz British Silver Robin Hood Coin depicts the folk hero in his natural habitat as he fires his bow from the trees. The coin is backed by the Great Britain government and carries a 2 GBP face value, introducing an additional layer of legitimacy to the aesthetically pleasing piece. For the savvy collector, it might be important to note that this coin is the first coin to be released in the British Royal Mint’s Myths and Legends Series, which commemorates some of the greatest folktales and children’s myths in the Western tradition. 

Key Features: 

  • Part of the “Myths and Legends” Series from the British Royal Mint. 
  • .999 fine silver (1 Troy Ounce). 
  • Obverse depiction: Queen Elizabeth II’s face. 
  • Reverse depiction: Robin Hood fires his bow from atop a tree.

Two other designs are planned for the Myths and Legends Series, which is already drawing attention from bullion coin collectors all over the world. The rich history of the Robin Hood story belongs to the whole world, but it holds special significance to the people and culture of Great Britain. The events of the story actually take place during a particularly tumultuous time in the history of the country. Richard I was frequently away from his kingdom during his reign; he often fought in the many wars of the classical British Empire. Because of his absence, nobles became glutinous overlords while many within the kingdom starved and experienced extreme poverty.  Robin Hood represents a core ideal of many people in Great Britain, as well as around the world. He hid in the woods of the Sherwood Forest, where he established a band of warriors capable of restoring financial justice and order to the conflict-laden kingdom. His direct action approach to inequality has resonated with people for generations. On the reverse side of the .999 pure silver bullion coin, the hero is shown holding his bow atop a tree in the historic Sherwood Forest.   The obverse of the coin pays homage to the monarch of the minting country. Queen Elizabeth II here is presented as was depicted by Jody Clark. Her effigy is regal; she wears her pearl earrings and crown.  Commemorate the incredible history of Great Britain, as well as the beauty of the Robin Hood story, with this unique silver collectable coin from Hero Bullion.
