The Great Engravers

Chief Engraver from 1828 until his death in 1851, William Wyon RA was a craftsman of rare talent.

Determined to elevate numismatic art, his rivalry with Benedetto Pistrucci energised him further, producing a legacy of exquisite coinage portraits.

Chief Engraver from 1828 until his death in 1851, many collectors consider William Wyon RA to be one of the finest artists to have ever worked on British coinage.

Who are The Three Graces?

The story of The Three Graces is that in Theogony Hesiod describes three Graces: Aglaea (personifying Radiance), Euphrosyne (Joy), and Thalia (Flowering).

He reports that their parents were Zeus and Eurynome.

The three goddesses from ancient Greek mythology called the Graces, known in Greek as the Charites.

Originally, goddesses of nature, came to be generally considered as companions of Aphrodite (Venus), the goddess of Love and Beauty.

According to poetic and literary tradition, the Graces were three in number, and their names were Euphrosyne, Thalia, and Aglaia.

Eternally young and lovely, they represented charm, beauty, and human creativity, and were depicted naked, originally holding attributes such as apples, roses, and sprigs of myrtle.
