With the ascension of King Charles III to the British crown, the esteemed Royal Mint presents a series that transcends mere metal — a collection that resonates with history and artistry. Dubbed the ‘Silvery Saga’, this series captures the spirit of a kingdom in gleaming argent, melding the elegance of the new monarch’s cypher with symbols from the storied expanse of the United Kingdom. And enhancing its allure for collectors is the limited mintage of just 70,000 pieces.
Each 1 oz British Silver ‘Silvery Saga’ Bar stands as a testament to masterful craftsmanship, perfectly cradled within its protective blisterpack. For enthusiasts seeking more, these bars are also available in sheets of 20, merging individual allure with collective splendor. Embedded within each package, the Royal Mint thoughtfully provides an authenticity card, signaling the bar’s pedigree by detailing its weight, purity, and the tales etched upon it.
The bar’s reverse is a canvas where history is rendered. Crafted exquisitely, it paints the United Kingdom in its full glory: England’s time-honored oaks, Scotland’s haunting lochs, the rugged coastlines of Wales, and Northern Ireland’s lush meadows. Dominating this tableau is an imperial crown, grandly segmenting the space for each nation’s iconic creature and botanical emblem.
The obverse, destined to catch the eye of many a connoisseur, features the cypher of King Charles III. An artful ensemble of ‘CR’ with the Roman numeral III, it’s majestically crowned, reminiscent of regal courts of yore. Above this, the Royal Mint’s insignia and name echo, crafted with an antiquated touch.
On the bar’s reverse, the realm of legends beckons. Here, the steadfast Crowned Lion of England watches, the ethereal Unicorn of Scotland strides with grace, the fiery Red Dragon of Wales takes flight, and Northern Ireland’s Elk, rooted in its legacy, stands with pride. Interspersed among these are the flora of the isles – the Rose, Thistle, Daffodil, and Clover, each with tales as old as time.
