Six Significant Virtues Star in this Scintillating Series

The Winged Angel of Victory appears at the top of the monument, with statuesque representations of Courage and Constancy crouched at her feet. Lastly, the final three personified virtues, Truth, Justice, and Charity, pose around the monument’s base. These six virtues provide a positive paragon for people everywhere to strive towards.

This Conquering Coin Comes Out On Top

The first coin in this historic Queen’s Virtues series honors “Victory”, which is said to be an achievement of mastery as well as triumph over one’s enemy. Victory also signals the end of conflict and promotes the celebration of peace. Interestingly, the Queen as Sovereign is the only person capable of formally declaring war since she holds the position of Head of the Armed Forces.

Inspiring Imagery On A Compelling Coin

The obverse of the Victory Coin showcases the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, designed by British sculptor Raphael Maklouf. The Queen’s name, country of issue, denomination, year of mintage, and weight and purity surround the coin’s rim. Also, the background displays an intricate geometric pattern. 

Victory Silver Coin

The reverse features Winged Victory, inspired by the statue on the Victoria Memorial. Designed by Dutch artist Elles Kloosterman, Victory faces left and holds a victor’s palm in her left hand. The palm branch originates from the ancient Middle East and symbolizes victory, success, and peace. Additionally, Victory is also shown stretching out her right arm in triumph. A background of shapes similar to the one on the obverse fills the field. Finally, the phrase “Victory Through Harmony” borders the left and top side of the coin, while the EIC privy mark appears on the lower right.

  1. Beautiful! When are the other coins in this series being released?

    • Great question! While the release schedule has not been made public, we anticipate a yearly release for this series.
      We will be updating this blog post as more information is revealed, so feel free to keep checking back with us.

  2. Very fine description of the artist’s inspiration for the first coin of the Queen’s Virtues series, “Victory”. The coin is handsomely done.

  3. So lovely and inspirational! Is there a limited quantity of these coins?

    • Great question!
      The maximum mintage number for the Silver Victory coin is 2,500, meaning no more than 2,500 will be produced in total. However, the actual mintage number may differ based on worldwide demand.

    Who is the manufacturer of these coins, is it part of the Royal mint?
