Description

Niue presents its first issue of new series  – Legendary Swords, and its first piece of this series. It is a 999,9 coin of 2 oz with an antique finish and gold plated on the main face.

One of the most famous swords in European legends, the Excalibur belonged to King Arthur. In Arthurian legends, the magical sword protected the king and his knights. There are varying accounts on how he obtained the sword, but it retains its significance in every story.

When Arthur was old enough to claim his inheritance, the wizard Merlin took him to a sword in a massive rock. Magically embedded by Merlin, the sword could only be removed by the rightful king of Britain. Many knights failed in drawing the sword from the stone, but Arthur succeeded and revealed his destiny.
