Knights' Tales

Chivalry all variations

Knights’ Tales is a fascinating five-coin series in which we travel back in time to a bygone age that was notorious for being bloody and brutal. But the Middle Ages was also the age of chivalry, when high-born warriors known as knights rode into battle on horseback dressed in full armour. The code of chivalry was a combination of the warrior ethos, piety, nobility and gallantry. To his loyal subjects, Maximilian I, to whom the first coin in the series is dedicated, embodied these values. The year 2019 is the 500th anniversary of the death of the Holy Roman Emperor and Archduke of Austria.

The coin’s obverse features a portrait of Maximilian I on the left, in which the Holy Roman Emperor is holding a lance. On the right, his coloured-applied coat of arms is held by a heraldic lion. The reverse shows a scene from a jousting tournament, in which a knight on horseback is in full gallop as seated spectators look on from a stand. Maximilian I was famous for his bravery when jousting.

825 anniversary Viennese Mint

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!’

KNIGHTS’ TALES COLLECTOR ALBUM

The Collector Album presents the Middle Ages and the world of knights through detailed illustrations and in-depth historical information.  

A rigorously researched, historically accurate and visually enthralling guide to both the darkness and the light of the Middle Ages, the Album looks at everyday life, childhood and youth during the Middle Ages. It also explains the medieval monetary system, the Crusades, the importance of castles and fortresses, and the concept of chivalry. The battle skills of knights are also explained, as are songs and ballads that were popular at the time, not to mention the link between Robin Hood and the huge ransom paid for the release of King Richard ‘The Lionheart’ of England in 1194.

The Album is crammed with amazing facts and detailed-though-accessible historical information. But, best of all, it stores all five Knights’ Tales coins in copper as well as the three 825th Anniversary of the Vienna Mint silver coins.
