In 2021, the Royal Mint announced a new series of coins based on British folklore. The Myths and Legends coin series grabs legendary figures from Britain’s past and brings them to the face of bullion coins. Previous versions have featured Little John, Maid Marian, and Robinhood.
Now, GoldClub Direct is proud to offer the newest coin in the series, the 2023 1 oz British Gold King Arthur Myths and Legends Coin.
King Arthur is one of the most popular mythical figures in British history. He is said to have ruled Celtic Britain during the late 5th and early 6th century from his famous court at Camelot and the Round Table. King Arthur was known for uniting his people against the Saxon invaders and being the noble leader of the Knights of the Round Table.
