Legendary King of the Britons

  • Solid Copper

  • 2 cm diameter
  • Limited Run

This design was based on the legends of the historical King Arthur, who would have lived somewhere around the 5th century, supposedly one of the last holdouts of the Roman culture on the isle of Britannia. On the obverse is Arthur Pendragon and the inscription: Artorius dux Bellorum Brit, translating to Arthur, Warlord of the Britons. The reverse bears a victrix, a Roman-style female winged figure. This is thought to be related to the Norse concept of the Valkyrie, and to the later Christian imagery of angels. The inscription reads Mons Badonis, referring to Arthur's victory at Badon Hill. The mintmark PCAM refers to Camelot.

To the King!

Though slightly smaller than I’d imagined - even though the dimensions were provided ahead of time - this coin is beautiful, and looks like it could have actually been minted in Medieval England. Bonus: though I originally thought I wouldn’t be able to display this one with all my other Tolkien-themed coins, I immediately remembered that the Collector’s Edition of Tolkien’s “The Fall of Arthur” sits on The Shelf, so it’s got a built-in display space!

Though smaller than I’d imagined, this is still an excellent addition to my collection - I can even include it with my other Tolkien pieces since it can rest on his The Fall of Arthur collector’s edition on the shelf.

For fans of Arthurian legends

Wow, this coin really looks like a circulated coin plucked from the pocket of somebody in the time of Camelot. SPM really takes pride and care in their work.
