Merlin is the most well-known of all the wizards. You’ll find tales of Merlin in Arthurian Legends as a magician, a shapeshifter, a dragon master, and an advisor to King Arthur. Over the centuries, the lore of Merlin has taken different directions. From his childhood to his death, the mysteries and magic of the Welsh wizard are forever held in this 1oz pure silver round which is reflected by famous illustrator, Howard David Johnson’s, artwork and the three-dimensional designs of sculptor Luigi Badia.
Merlin is depicted on the obverse of this 1oz pure silver round. He is seen carrying his scepter and wearing a heavy and rich looking cloak. Celtic folklore reveals animals with mystic powers and hidden meanings; the owl hovering by Merlin’s side is said to be a talking owl. Hedgehogs walk at the wizard’s feet as the forest around the mystic trio appear snowy and bright. Celtic knots appear on the reverse of the 1 oz Silver Celtic round. Endless knots created by one cord result in this beautiful and traditional interlacing pattern which is still seen in artwork today.

This silver round makes a magical gift for a child’s birthday, or to get them interested in collecting silver.
The 1 oz Merlin silver round was produced in a limited mintage of 2,000. Each round in this limited-edition series contains a serial number etched into its reeded edge. A certificate of authenticity with matching serial number comes with each round. Along with an assay card, each 1oz silver Merlin round is protected in an acrylic capsule.
