Maid Marian Coins



The Maid Marian coins were released in 2022 as the second instalment of the Robin Hood coin series. This coin features a beautiful depiction of the maid situated between oak trees in Sherwood forest. The Maid Marian coins were struck in Gold and Silver, with 1oz and 10oz variations available in .999 fine Silver. As the Gold and Silver Maid Marian coins are both classified as legal tender, they are except from UK Capital Gains Tax which allows investors to keep profits raised from selling these coins in the future

Interestingly, at 999.9 fine, the 10oz Silver coin is a purer alloy than the 1oz version which is .999 fine Silver. Both are classified as pure Silver. Purity is measured as parts per 1,000. Whilst .999 fine Silver is 99.9% pure the 999.9 or "four 9's fine" as it is referred to in the industry is 99.99% pure. It is noteworthy that these purity grades are the minimum fineness, the actual purity may be slightly higher than specified on the coin. The Gold Maid Marian coin is 999.9 fine Gold, the same purity as the Gold Britannia

Maid Marian is named as such because at the time of the original Robin Hood era, it was customary to refer to an unmarried woman as a 'Maid'. Some record show that Maid Marian did not feature in the first medieval versions of the Robin Hood tale but was a common character in modern-times. Her character was one of independence, strength and intelligence making her a celebrated figure among some feminist champions as a female icon in historic British literature

Although not obvious as a key and popular figure from old British myths and legends, Maid Marian has inspired several authors to publish fictional books based on her as the main character. The Silver and Gold Maid Marian coins are a popular instalment to the Myths and Legends series and will likely continue to be on the radar of collectors looking to purchase the complete set of this mythical and historic bullion coin range
