The Faerie Queene Collection is a new series of precious metal coins inspired by Edmund Spenser’s epic medieval poem. The series will tell stories of knights, princesses, mythical beasts, magical villains, honour, betrayal, love and loss, all brought to life by one of the world’s most celebrated coin designers, Joel Iskowitz.

This first coin in the series starts, as it should, at the beginning. Book One tells the story of The Redcrosse Knight and the quest he is given by The Faerie Queene on behalf of the lady Una; to rescue her parents from the captivity of an evil dragon.

There is surely no better canvas for Joel Iskowitz’s exclusive new design than this impressive 100mm coin, its every illustrative detail emphasised by the stunning proof quality finish. Issued as a strictly limited edition, it is presented in a bespoke luxury case accompanied by a certificate which guarantees its authenticity, quality, and exclusivity.
