THE FIFTH COIN IN THE QUEEN’S VIRTUES SIX COIN COLLECTION

‘The Queen’s Virtues’ series continues with the fifth coin representing Courage, the virtue of fortitude.

Courage is represented by a seated allegory with cape flying in the wind and carrying in the club. The club is thought to symbolise determination and bravery. Seated at the base of Victory, Courage is demonstrated as being essential to being victorious.

The 2022 Courage 1oz silver proof coin design is completed by the Latin phrase:

FORTES FORTUNA ADIUVAT
which translates as
FORTUNE FAVOURS THE BRAVE.

 

This limited edition 1oz silver proof coin is presented in a bespoke case accompanied by an informative booklet and a numbered certificate which guarantees its quality and authenticity.

The allegorical presentation of the Queen’s six virtues was first presented on the Victoria Memorial, situated outside Buckingham Palace. Designed after Queen Victoria’s death in 1901, The Winged Angel of Victory is featured at the very top of the monument and crouched at her feet are the allegorical figures of Courage and Constancy. Courage wears a helmet and bears a club, while Constancy holds a ship’s compass, and both have cloaks swirling out in the breeze. Beneath stand personifications of Justice, Truth and Charity.
Designed and sculpted by Sir Thomas Brock, he described the symbolism of the monument as devoted to the
“qualities which made our Queen so great and so much beloved. “

This innovative and thought-provoking collection is released in tribute of the ‘Virtues of a Queen’. Virtues which, in all our lives, remain as important as ever, especially during unsettled times. Issued over three years in gold and silver, the collection features the allegorical personifications of
VICTORY, TRUTH, CHARITY, JUSTICE, COURAGE AND CONSTANCY
