The idealised image of the knight still shines brightly today. Over the centuries, the legends of the knights of the Middle Ages have lost little of their attraction. In this five-coin series, we present some of these authentic and yet mythical heroes, and cast light on the virtues and talents of the various chivalrous orders.
By means of these coins, we bring to life glimpses of historic moments, when we accompany knights on their journeys of adventure, and discover the romance of knighthood through the love songs of minstrels. But most of all, we will try to explain what is meant by chivalry: respect for others, charity and generosity, but also the desire to fight the good fight, negotiate with firmness, employing willpower, courage, loyalty and allegiance in the pursuit of self-determination.
All these human qualities are reflected in this series and in the maxim: ‘We should all be knights!’
