THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE DESIGN
Our first DESIGN in the series, the Victory coin features the allegorical representation of Victory.
Victory is said to be the achievement of mastery, success and overcoming an enemy. A key virtue recognised in both Victoria’s and Elizabeth II’s reign Victory holds a position at the very top of the Victoria Memorial monument. In gilded bronze stands a Winged Victory on a globe holding a victor’s palm. The victors palm represents victory, triumph and peace, a symbol originating from the Middle East. In ancient Roman religion, Victoria was a goddess personifying Victory, the Roman’s equivalent of the Greek goddess, Nike.
