2018 £5 Three Graces Wedgwood Jasperware Coin

Celebrating 250 Years of Wedgwood’s Excellence

Embark on a journey through time with the 2018 £5 Three Graces Wedgwood Jasperware Coin, crafted to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the iconic Wedgwood brand. This coin, a fusion of numismatic and ceramic artistry, is a tribute to the legacy of Josiah Wedgwood, the famed industrialist and philanthropist who revolutionised the world of ceramics in the 18th century.

Exquisite Craftsmanship and Historical Significance

The coin’s reverse features the revered “Three Graces” design, inspired by classical mythology and the neoclassical marble masterpiece by Antonio Canova. These three mythological figures – embodiments of youth, mirth, and elegance – are beautifully rendered against a serene pastel blue Jasperware base, surrounded by geometric shapes that echo Greek neoclassical art.

Josiah Wedgwood’s groundbreaking invention of Jasperware in the 1770s, with its distinct matte blue base and classic white bas-relief, is celebrated through this coin. The mintage of only 3,000 pieces mirrors the number of trials undertaken by Josiah to perfect this innovative ceramic technique, making each coin a precious memento of his tireless pursuit of perfection.

An Unparalleled Addition to Your Collection

Limited Edition: With a mintage limit of just 3,000, each coin is a rare collector’s item.
World-First Design: The first ever legal tender coin featuring Jasperware, a true convergence of numismatic and ceramic art.
Historical Legacy: Celebrates over two centuries of Wedgwood’s contribution to ceramic art and English heritage.

This coin is not just a collectible but a piece of history, embodying the pioneering spirit and enduring excellence of Wedgwood. It is a must-have for collectors and enthusiasts of both numismatics and fine ceramics.
