The Medieval period of human history is full of folktales and historical legends of male figures fighting back against injustice, rallying kingdoms to defeat foreign intruders, and overcoming the odds. There are few female characters depicted in the same light, but Maid Marian from the tale of Robin Hood is an exceptional example of early depictions of women as warriors. Today, you have the opportunity to get 2022 British Maid Marian 1 oz Gold Coins online from Provident Metals.
While many of the stories tell of Maid Marian coming from a position of high status within Medieval English society, she is rarely depicted as a bystander in Robin Hoods cause. Quite the contrary. In fact, in most stories, she earns the highest respect of Robin Hood and his men for her courage, independence, and loyalty to the cause.
On the obverse of 2022 British Maid Marian 1 oz Gold Coins, you will find the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown here in the fifth-generation British coin portrait designed in 2015 by Jody Clark. The design shows the Queen at the age of 89 with the George IV State Diadem. The inscriptions include 100 POUNDS, ELIZABETH II, and D.G. REG F.D.
The reverse side of 2022 British Maid Marian Gold Coins comes with an image of the heroine from Robin Hood folklore, Maid Marian. She is shown here standing behind the foliage of Sherwood Forest as she keeps a watchful eye out for the men of the Sheriff of Nottingham and Prince John. The inscriptions on this field read MAID MARIAN, 1 OZ, FINE GOLD, 999.9, and 2022.
Maid Marian does not appear in the original Medieval tales of Robin Hood. Some of the earliest mentions of a character known as Marian appears alongside Robin in association with May Games festivals in the 15th century. When Robin Hoods character is recast as a man of higher standing in society during the late 16th century, the Marian character from May Games becomes Maid Marian and is given a more prominent place in the storyline.
These 2022 British Maid Marian 1 oz Gold Coins are available to purchase in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins come with protective plastic flips, tubes of 10 coins, or boxes of 100 coins. In the box, you will find 10 individual 10-coin tubes.
