CoinSilver Ounce 2022 Robin Hood - Little John

Like many other mints, the Royal Mint issues bullion coins in precious metals, having much higher intrinsic value than their face value. The one ounce (1 oz) silver coins are denominated as either two pounds (£2) or five pounds (£5), depending on the occasion.

Initially, these were only of the Britannia type, but in 2015 the Royal Mint started to use the format for coins with other types of reverse designs, celebrating various aspects of British heritage.

The coins are legal tender but are not intended for circulation. They are targeted at bullion investors or collectors who appreciate the special editions as pieces of art.

This is the third design in the Myths and Legends range of bullion coins by the Royal Mint, and features Little John, a character from the tales of Robin Hood.

The Mint says about the coin:
"Inspired by the traditions of storytelling and folklore, passed down through centuries and generations, the Myths and Legends Collection from The Royal Mint launched in 2020, beginning with a three-coin series celebrating the famous tales of Robin Hood. The archer himself and Maid Marian appeared on the first two coins in the collection, and now the third coin in the series completes the trio of legendary characters with Little John, the faithful sidekick who is always ready to follow Robin Hood into battle.

For this coin, the designer Jody Clark has brought legend to life, depicting Little John amongst the strong trees and branches of Sherwood Forest that echo the strength and steadfastness of the character."
