Riding Through History: The Elegance & Courage of the Lady Godiva Coin!
Lady Godiva’s Tale
Embodied in 3 ounces of the finest silver (.9999), Lady Godiva comes to life, narrating the tale of the 11th-century Anglo-Saxon noblewoman who, according to legend, rode unclothed through the cobblestone streets of Coventry, cloaked only in her flowing locks, as a plea for the alleviation of oppressive taxes imposed upon the townsfolk.
The coin is the third issue in the “Eternal Sculptures II” series (if you are curious about how it differs from "Eternal Sculptures I", check out the blog post on “Moses”).
Lady Godiva: A Journey Through Elegance and Compassion
The "Lady Godiva" coin meticulously immortalizes a legendary act of compassion and bravery from the 11th century. The reverse of the coin portrays the iconic Lady Godiva, demonstrating grace and benevolence as she embarks on her famous ride through Coventry, her cascading hair flowing down, symbolizing beauty, sensuality, and courage.
The Smartminting Ultra High Relief technology accentuates the intricate details of the scene, enveloping it in an aura of sophistication and bringing the legendary ride to life. Lady Godiva’s expression of kindness and the meticulous details of her depiction make this coin an exceptional collectible, brimming with historical significance.
Obverse Design: An Emblem of Distinction
The obverse side of the "Lady Godiva" coin reveals a design of emblematic sophistication, conferring a touch of nobility to this illustrious piece. It prominently displays the Coat of Arms of Palau, a representation of the nation's rich heritage and distinct identity.

This distinguished obverse design augments the coherence of the "Eternal Sculptures II" series and imbues an extra layer of historical and cultural significance to the coin, linking it to the revered traditions and symbols of Palau.
