Robin Hood Coin Background
The Royal Mint is celebrating the legendary hero Robin Hood with this brand new coin, the first in a new bullion collection inspired by myth and legend. According to his legend, he was a highly skilled archer and swordsman and is said to have stolen from the rich and given to the poor.
He became a popular folk figure in the late Middle Ages, and the earliest known ballads featuring him are from the fourteenth century. There were also a number of characters associated with Robin Hood including his lover, Maid Marian, his band of outlaws, the Merry Men, his right-hand man, Little John, and his chief opponent, the Sheriff of Nottingham.
Robin Hood is considered one of the best-known tales of English folklore. There have been numerous variations and adaptations of the story over the subsequent years, and the story continues to be widely represented in literature, film, and television.
Robin Hood Coin Design
This is the first coin in a new bullion collection inspired by the myth and legend of Robin Hood. Jody Clark’s depiction of the character features him hidden amongst the branches of Sherwood Forest, knelt down and poised with a bow and arrow ready for action.
The hero of folklore will soon be followed by two more coins inspired by the tale, the courageous heroine Maid Marian and Robin Hood’s trusted companion, Little John.
