To celebrate the 800th Anniversary of the Signing of the Magna Carta, Pobjoy Mint is delighted to announce the release of a stunning new commemorative dished coin on behalf of the Ascension Island Government. 

The Magna Carta is one of the most well-known documents in English History and it was sealed on 15th June 1215 under oath by King John at Runnymede on the bank of the River Thames near Windsor, England.  

In the 14th Century, Parliament saw it as guaranteeing trial by jury and it has resonant echoes in the American Bill of Rights and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.  Only four examples of the original 1215 text remain, all of which are located in England and this year all four surviving copies have been brought together to celebrate the Anniversary.

The design on the coin is based on the domed memorial at Runnymede in England which contains a pillar of English granite upon which is inscribed ‘To commemorate the Magna Carta, symbol of Freedom under Law.  The domed roof showing the stars can be seen with the central pillar leading down.  King John’s original seal with shown within the roof with a ribbon curling down the pillar.  Available in Cupro Nickel and Proof Sterling Silver, the coin has been produced as a partially dished coin to replicate the domed roof of the memorial.  

The obverse of the coin features an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS with each precious Pobjoy Proof Finish.
