The 2 oz fine-silver coin is struck in a new minting technique called “Bi-Metal Max”, that combines 11.5 oz of copper as a base for the top layer of fine-silver, resulting in super ultra-high relief while being complemented with antiqued silver finishing. The technique allows the coin to have an incredible weight and feel in the hand together with its 80 mm diameter size.

The collectible showcases the portrait of the hero in his armor and the elements from the theme which features various ornaments that symbolize the character’s chivalric values and beliefs. The same ornaments and details can be found on the obverse surrounding the legal tender, the Coat of Arms du Tchad.

Description

The Nine Worthies are nine historical, scriptural, and legendary personages who personify the ideals of chivalry established in the Middle Ages, penned by Jacques de Longuyon in his book “The Vows of the Peacock”. Deemed a valuable study for aspirants to chivalric status, the list is divided into three distinct groups, Pagans, Jews, and Christians.

This collectible features King Arthur as the first from the Christian group. King Arthur is the heroic and tragic figure that straddles both myth and history, is often titled the “Once and Future King of England”. He is well known for his enchanted sword–Excalibur, his Knights of the Round Table, and his quest for the Holy Grail. Although there are many heroic tales of King Arthur, it is one of his more human moments that helps solidify the aspect that he represents; humility.
