New Delhi – MMTC-PAMP, India’s only LBMA-accredited gold & silver refinery, proudly announces the launch of its Oxford Mint Double Crown silver coin weighing 50 gms. Originally inspired by William Wyon’s detailed and artistic interpretation of ‘St. George and the Dragon’, these coins are a collector’s delight as they are a tribute to the historic double crown that traces its origin to the 19th century. The historic double crown has time and again found its place for collectors that trace their love of history through coins and this particular coin has marked the reign of English sovereigns through its presence.
The Double Crown has been crafted with exceptional attention to detail. The obverse of the coin features the image of Queen Elizabeth II, and at the back, the coin features a stunning depiction of ‘St. George and the Dragon’, as envisioned by William Wyon, the chief engraver of The Royal Mint from 1828. The iconic design has been reimagined by Italian artist Chiara Principe. In Wyon’s interpretation of ‘St. George and Dragon’, the scene of slaying the mighty dragon is an iconic tale of bravery and courage, inspiring generations with its timeless message of overcoming adversity.
The Double Crown is intricately minted in 999.9 fine silver and its design pays homage to the history of these coins. It has been meticulously modelled and crafted using the latest minting techniques available with MMTC-PAMP. It is a highly sought-after collectible for numismatists (collectors of coins) and silver enthusiasts alike. The Silver Crown’s history dates back more than 400 years to 1551, making it a valuable gift.
Speaking on the launch, Mr Vikas Singh, CEO & Managing Director, MMTC-PAMP said, “We are delighted to introduce the Double Crown to our collection of commemorative coins. This coin is a timeless masterpiece crafted from the purest silver and pays a fitting tribute to William Wyon’s interpretation of ‘St. George and the Dragon.’ This tribute by MMTC-PAMP also marks the life and legacy of Queen Elizabeth II, whose reign witnessed many historic events. The Double Crown coin is the ultimate collectible and we have introduced similar commemoratives like, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose silver bar and Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav coins. Each MMTC-PAMP product offers unmatched Swiss craftsmanship and the promise of purest gold & silver and I believe this tribute will be well received by our consumers.”
