Harry Potter had both human and nonhuman allies in his long quest to confront the evil wizard Voldemort as portrayed in both the books and their blockbuster film adaptations. One of the most loyal of his friends was the owl Hedwig: a kind of magical messenger much like others of her kind, but one who formed a close bond with Harry and stuck with him to the end. The doughty Hedwig is celebrated by Monnaie de Paris with the 2022 Proof French Harry Potter Hedwig 1/4 oz Gold Coin, now available to you from Provident Metals.
The 2022 Proof French Harry Potter Hedwig Gold Coin features brilliant mirrored backgrounds and high-relief artwork that identifies a true proof-quality collectible. This precious gold coin ships fully insured by Provident Metals in quality box packaging, and each coin comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
Hedwig the owl is featured in a high-relief engraving on the coin’s obverse side, carrying Harry Potter’s advanced Nimbus 2000 broom with the Banquet Hall at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry forming a backdrop.
The coin’s reverse side features the coat of arms of Hogwarts with a scroll beneath it bearing a motto that translates to “Never Tickle a Sleeping Dragon.” It’s framed by decorative engraving around the rim and it carries inscriptions of the coin’s face value and the Harry Potter logo.
Like many other elements of the enchanted magical world of Harry Potter, its magical owls had an impact on trends in the real world as the popularity of the books and then the film adaptations soared. An upswing in the popularity of purchasing owls as pets eventually compelled J.K. Rowling to issue a statement urging them not to, saying her books were most certainly not meant to imply “that an owl would be happiest shut in a small cage and kept in a house.” The Hedwig of both the books and films is most certainly a free creature and a hero in her own right, not a “pet” in the strictest sense, and a compelling subject for commemoration with a precious gold coin.
