UNA & THE LION 2021 UK One Ounce Silver Bar
Great Engravers Series
A stunning new version of Una and the lion created by Jody Clark begins the series. Jody is probably best known for his coinage portrait of Her Majesty The Queen that has been struck on all United Kingdom coins since 2015. The experienced artist has created many other deigns for The Royal Mint including the regal and renowned Queen’s Beasts Collection.
Una and the lion was first captured on coins by William Wyon RA, Chief Engraver at The Royal Mint from 1828 until his death. Wyon was inspired by the poem The Faërie Queene by Edmund Spenser, but fused his interpretation with reality, by depicting the young Queen Victoria as the focus of his design. His Una and the lion coin is considered as one of the most beautiful in coinage history, so it was a natural choice for the first subject in a new bullion series.
This stunning 1oz bar has a limited mintage of 35,000 pieces and comes in a protective plastic sleeve.
