Made entirely by hand by Wedgwood, this is the first Legal Tender coin made in Wedgewood’s Finest Jasperware and is a beautiful recreation of an original neoclassical design.
Limited to only 3000 pieces worldwide, this coin is an extremely rare ceramic release.
Your coin will be accompanied by a unique Certificate of Authenticity and is housed in a premium Wedgewood case showcasing your coin in style.
The Three Graces Coin design was initially created in 1847 following a unique collaboration between renowned engraver William Wyon and his mentor John Flaxman. The latter was recognised as a champion of neoclassicism, sourcing his inspiration for coin designs from stories of Ancient Greece and Rome.
The Three Graces design depicts three female figures in a classical style. The central figure standing taller than her opposite lover is recognised as Britannia and represents England. At the feet of the three women the harp, a shield bearing the cross of Saint George, and an oversized thistle are viewed as representations of Ireland, England and Scotland.
Whilst very few coins were struck with this iconic reverse design, in 2020 the William Wyons design was entered into The Great Engravers Collection, with variations of the design released on Silver and Gold Coins. This was an extremely popular release which has brought the design back into the public conscience.
