This is the second coin to honor characters from the Robin Hood legend. The first coin honored Robin Hood himself. This one honors his companion, Maid Marian. The next coin to follow will be Lil John. Maid Marian is said to have been a woman of stature in society but also a friend to the people. She was believed to be an informant for Robin Hood in his adventures with his Merry Men in Sherwood forest.
The obverse of the coin features the now familiar Queen Elizabeth II design by Jody Clark. Clark’s design was commissioned in 2015 by the Royal Mint and shows the queen at age 89. In this design she is wearing the Diadem crown and royal jewels. ‘ELIZABETH II’ is written to the right of the portrait and ‘2 Pounds’ is written to the left. The bottom half of the coin has ‘D.G.REG. F.D.’ which are the initials for two Latin phrases which mean “By the grace of God, queen” and “defender of the faith’.
On the reverse side of the coin is Maid Marian in the woods perhaps working as a lookout for her companion, Robin Hood. She has a simple dress and what looks like leather gloves on. Slung over her shoulder is a bow and a quiver of arrows. Top left of the coin is the words “MAID MARIAN”. At the top and to the right of the coin is written ‘1 oz. FINE SILVER 999’ and ‘2022’.
