Not only has this masterpiece been beautifully struck in eight ounces of fine silver, it has also been gently hand-toned to bring out every detail. Arthurian legend is woven into the folklore of our island nation; yet centuries after Arthur’s time, literary invention is more easily discovered than historic fact. In these medallic masterpieces, Lee R Jones evokes both truth and allegory, portraying the warrior King in triumph as well as the humbled man at the point of his ultimate defeat. Royal Mint Engraver Lee R Jones has brought both the power and the pathos of Arthurian legend to life in these highly detailed engravings. Each one has been immaculately struck, to ensure that every nuance of these true masterpieces stands out in high relief. The accompanying booklet features a wealth of scholarly insights from eminent historians Sean Davies and Karen Jankulak.
