Slow and steady might have won the day for the Tortoise, but with strong early interest in these strictly limited-edition coins we are encouraging early orders to avoid losing the race!
‘slow and steady wins the race’
THE GOOSE THAT LAID THE GOLDEN EGG SILVER PROOF 50P
Aesop’s Fables are often accompanied by entertaining illustrations that bring the stories to life. Coin 2 in this new series follows that tradition to tell the tale of a farmer whose goose laid an egg of pure gold. Hoping to get all the gold at once the farmer kills the goose, but found nothing inside and was left empty-handed. The moral of the story is:
‘be thankful for what you’ve got’
let me tell you a story...
Aesop’s Fables is a collection of short stories believed to originally have been told by Aesop, a slave and storyteller who lived in ancient Greece. His story is so ancient that the facts about his life are unclear, but the simple truths of his fables have been passed on from generation to generation, timeless tales still read and enjoyed all over the world to this day.
The human truths of Aesop’s Fables have been passed down from generation to generation, either read aloud or told in books with entertaining illustrations that bring the stories to life. This combination of simple stories and visual storytelling makes Aesop’s Fables an ideal theme for coin design, which itself has been used to tell stories for centuries.
