Robin Hood was the first design for the Myths and Legends Series that started in 2021. The collection offers new reverse designs featuring images of the legendary, mythical Robin Hood and members of his Band of Merry Men, including Little John and Robin’s love interest, Maid Marian.
The obverse side of the 2023 British Silver Robin Hood Coin comes with a depiction of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen is captured here in right-profile relief wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown. This design was created in 2015 for the Royal Mint by Jody Clark.
On the reverse field of 2023 10 oz Silver Robin Hood Coins, you will find a depiction of the man known to prowl Sherwood Forest. Robin Hood is depicted on the branch of a tree as he takes careful aim at his target using his bow and arrow.
In British folklore, Robin Hood is a skilled archer and swordsman who, in some versions of the tail, served with King Richard I in the Crusades. Returning to a Britain that was in turmoil, Robin used his skills as an archer to steal from the rich to give to the poor. In particular, he targeted tax collectors who were stripping the poor of Britain to support Prince John.
