From an etymological standpoint, the Latin word for trivium means “the place where three roads meet.” When it applied to education, trivium represents the merger of various fields of study within the liberal arts providing an individual with all-around education and enlightenment as a member of the world order.
The trivium as detailed in the design of the Silver Trivium Girls Shield Round focuses on grammar, logic, and rhetoric. Grammar teaches the mechanics of language, while logic focuses on the mechanics of thought and analysis. Rhetoric applies knowledge of language to instruct and persuade a listener.
On the obverse of the 2018 1 oz Silver Trivium Girls Shield Round are three women represent the hope of a new future. The Trivium Girls represent the disciplines mentioned above, the Lady Rhetoric on the right, Lady Logic in the middle, and Lady Grammar on the left. Together, these women direct the world toward a closer connection with truth and guide mankind along the right path.
The reverse of the 1 oz Silver Trivium Girls Shield Round includes the common design element of the series. Known simply as the Silver Shield, this design features a sword standing on point with an ornate design surrounding it, an outer edge of flames, and engravings of “Silver Shield,” “1 Troy ounce 2018 .999 Pure AG.”
