Myth & Magic

Myth & Magic figurines are produced by The Tudor Mint. The initial collection of 12 figures first appeared in 1989 and were an instant success with shops and collectors. The range quickly grew and by the end of the first year almost forty figures had been released.

Prior to Myth & Magic, The Tudor Mint was producing a series of silver and gilt-plated animals entitled Crystalflame. Interest in this collection was waning and the idea of a similar range based on mythology was put forward.

Today the collection boasts dragons, wizards and characters not only from the world of Myth & Magic (Methtintdour), but also from Arthurian Legend and Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings".

A Myth & Magic Collectors Club began in 1990 and ran for a number of years. Members received a membership gifts and the opportunity to purchase members only items. Early models are especially collectable. The club also produced a bi-yearly Myth & Magic journal, The Methtintdour Times.

There is a lot of interest in the early figures, as well as the club and extravaganza models, however the high prices achieved for models in the 1990s are gone. There are a number of mould variations in the range with the same piece often being produced in slightly different formats. The earlier mould variations are generally the more sought after.
