<About Three Graces >
The Three Graces is the second release in the series. Created by William Wyon RA at the start of his career, only around 50 examples were struck, making it one of the world’s most sought-after coin designs. In homage to the original, modern striking techniques breathe new life into Wyon’s masterpiece.
Struck to showcase the skills of an ambitious young engraver after Benedetto Pistrucci’s designs for the newly recoined half-crown, shillings and sixpence of 1816 attracted criticism from certain quarters; the design conveys the unity of the nations after the Act of Union of 1801 between Great Britain and Ireland. Wyon was an extraordinary talent and has a legacy few can rival. His later work included his romantic take on St George and the dragon for Prince Albert’s personal medal of 1845, the magnificent Gothic Crown, introduced in 1847, and the medal designed for the Great Exhibition of 1851.
