This summer the prophecy will be fulfilled…

The Coronation

On 6 May 2023, Charles III was crowned King of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth realms in a majestic ceremony at Westminster Abbey in London. To mark the occasion, Trevor teamed up with Apollo Entertainment and The Evening Standard newspaper to produce the incredible NFT The Oath, which depicts St Edward’s Crown, the most important artefact of the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom. Made of solid gold and studded with 444 precious and semi-precious stones, this has been the crown of coronation since 1661. The crown stands on a background that conveys a sense of the elemental forces of nature: an allusion to King Charles’s lifetime passion and tireless campaigning for the protection of the environment. The title of the piece refers to the Coronation Oath, in which the monarch solemnly swears to govern the peoples of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth Realms according to their respective laws and customs.

The Oath

The Oath was free to the 20,200 people who claimed it during the weekend of the coronation, and everyone who still held it a week after the coronation had the chance to win The Crown – an enhanced limited-edition version of the artwork. Trevor worked closely with Apollo Entertainment to create this adaptation of The Oath that brought incredible new animation and sound to the original artwork. An edition of 444 The Crown NFTs were created: 25 are now held by trevorjonesart, Apollo Entertainment, and the Evening Standard, and the remaining NFTs were airdropped from random draws into the Nifty Gateway accounts of 419 lucky Oath keepers.
