Product Description

The legend of minstrel Blondel singing his way from castle to castle in search of his master Richard the Lionheart has captivated adults and children alike for centuries. This is the second 10 euro silver coin in the Austrian Tales and Legend series. Minted in 2009, this coin was struck in 925 Sterling silver in proof quality with a maximum mintage of 40,000. The coin comes in a case complete with a numbered certificate of authenticity and protective slipcase.

On his way home from the Crusades, King Richard I of England was captured by Duke Leopold of Austria and held in Duernstein castle, which serves as a backdrop to the mounted Blondel on the coin’s obverse. The reverse shows the King’s capture at an inn outside Vienna where, although disguised as a humble pilgrim, he was recognised either due to his elaborate signet ring or his desire to eat roast chicken, a delicacy reserved for the aristocracy at that time. Both are shown in the intricate detail of this extraordinary coin.
