2024 Morgan Le Fay Myths & Legends 1oz Gold coin
This is a brand new 1oz gold bullion coin and is the 3rd coin of the Royal Mint’s second Myths & Legends 3-coin collectible mini-series. It follows the popular release of the King Arthur 1oz gold coin and Merlin 1oz gold coin.
Continuing the enduring legend of King Arthur, the third and final coin in the series features the sorceress Morgan Le Fay. Her character has undergone several transformations throughout the centuries, reflecting the changing perceptions of powerful and sometimes malevolent women.
The King Arthur series of coins follows on from the success of the Mint’s first Myths & Legends collection. These coins celebrated the legend of Robin Hood, with coins adorned by Robin Hood himself, Maid Marion and Little John. These coins are a must have for any collector.
Each coin is minted to 999.9 purity gold, containing 1 troy ounce of 24-carat gold. Coins will arrive in official tubes for orders in multiples of ten. Like the other 1oz gold coins in the series, the Morgan Le Fay coin possesses a face value of £100, qualifying the coin as legal tender – meaning any profits made when selling the coins in the future are completely free from Capital Gains Tax. The Royal Mint has produced these coins to bullion finish, deeming them ideal for investment due to their lower production cost.
Who is Morgan le Fay
In the Arthurian tales, Morgan is frequently portrayed as King Arthur’s half-sister, the daughter of Arthur’s mother, Igraine, and her first husband, Gorlois, Duke of Cornwall. Depending on the version, she is known for her complex relationship with Arthur, often oscillating between aiding and opposing him.
Morgan Le Fay is often linked to magical practices and is depicted as a skilled healer and sorceress with a deep knowledge of the mystical arts. However, her intentions are not always benevolent. In some stories, she acts as an antagonist, plotting against Arthur and his knights. She is even occasionally portrayed as a potential lover or wife of Merlin the wizard, adding another layer of complexity to her character.
Morgan’s character has fascinated writers, poets, and artists throughout history, with various interpretations highlighting her as a symbol of feminine power, often in contrast to the male-dominated medieval society. Over time, she has become an iconic figure in Arthurian literature and has appeared in numerous modern adaptations in various forms of media, including books, films, and television shows.

On the coin’s reverse, the enchantress is depicted as most modern audiences recognise her by renowned coin designer David Lawrence.
Wearing a winged headpiece, the enchantress stands poised to inflict magic upon her enemies, with her hands drawn ready to conjure dark magic.
The obverse now features the latest official portrait of King Charles III by Martin Jennings. The first coin in the series displayed the Queen Elizabeth II portrait, familiar since 2015.
