2024 Morgan Le Fay Myths & Legends 1oz Silver coin
This is a brand new 1oz silver 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 silver coin and the subsequent Merlin 1oz silver coin.
Continuing the enduring legend of King Arthur, the third and final coin in the series features Morgan Le Fay, known primarily as King Arthur’s half-sister. She is a complex character whose portrayal has varied throughout different versions of the legend. While her character often embodies elements of both good and evil, she is usually depicted as a powerful enchantress with a deep knowledge of magic.
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 purity silver, containing 1 troy ounce of 24-carat silver. Coins will arrive in official tubes for orders in multiples of ten. Like the other 1oz silver coins in the series, the Morgan coin possesses a face value of £2, 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.
Varying depictions of Morgan Le Fay
In some versions of the Arthurian legend, Morgan Le Fay is depicted as a benevolent figure, using her magical abilities to aid King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. However, in many other versions, she is portrayed as a malevolent character who seeks to undermine King Arthur’s rule and bring about his downfall. She is sometimes depicted as a villainous and vengeful character who plots against her half-brother and even becomes one of his greatest adversaries.
Morgan Le Fay’s character has inspired numerous literary works, including various poems, novels, and films, where she is often portrayed as a complex and intriguing figure with a deep connection to the mystical and magical elements of the Arthurian world.
Her character’s complexity has made her a subject of fascination for many readers and scholars interested in the Arthurian legend and medieval literature.

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.
