The Queen's Virtues - Victory One Ounce Silver Bullion
The Queen's Virtues are the principles founded by Queen Victoria and carried forward by Queen Elizabeth II. The core virtues Victory, Truth, Justice, Charity, Courage, and Constancy. The Queen's six virtues were first presented on the Victoria Memorial, situated outside of Buckingham Palace.
Now for the first time, The Queen's Virtues are celebrated in a historic six coin series. The first coin in this magnificent series represents Victory, one of the most prominent virtues a Monarch can hold, the triumph over an enemy. Victory is a key element in both Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II's reign. Victory signals the end of the conflict and a celebration of peace. The Queen as Sovereign is Head of the Armed Forces and is still the only person able to formally declare war and more crucially, an end to conflict.
