2019 Austria 1/2-oz Silver Knight’s Tales – Chivalry Proof
Proof That Chivalry Is Not Dead!
The code of chivalry was one of the shining lights of honor and piety in an era stricken with merciless brutality and constant warfare. A knight’s code of honor was everything to him and helped give some sense of peace and civility in a period of history dubbed the “Medieval Age.” Struck in a half ounce of gleaming 92.5% Sterling silver, this 10 Euro legal-tender coin harkens back to this archaic age with amazing detail and an incredible story.
Struck by the Prestigious Austrian Mint, the coin’s reverse shows a knight on horseback competing in a jousting tournament, one of many competitions knights took part in to test their mettle and hone their skills. The obverse depicts Maximillian I; Archduke of Austria, Duke of Burgundy, Holy Roman Emperor, and Sovereign of the knightly Order of the Golden Fleece. The Order of the Golden Fleece was an extremely exclusive order of knights that never had more than 30 members to it and only consisted of the noble elite. Considered to be the best of the best, these knights lived their lives by the Code of Chivalry. To his subjects, Maximillian I exemplified all the values Chivalry. Next to Maximillian’s highly detailed image is his Coat of Arms rendered in full color and held by a heraldic lion.
