When William Wyon designed the now iconic Una and the Lion motif it was seen as controversial. The design depicted Queen Victoria as the fictional character, Lady Una, from Edmund Spenser’s epic poem The Faerie Queene.
But whilst controversial, it was hailed as the most beautiful coin to have ever been struck.
And now The Royal Mint have released a brand new faithful reproduction of this famous coin, to give collectors the scarce opportunity to secure it...
A faithful modern reproduction
The UK 2019 Una and the Lion 2oz Silver Proof Coin features the original design by Wyon. It’s impeccably struck from 2 full ounces of pure silver to the mint’s trademark perfect proof finish. The precious metal and top-quality finish is a warranted nod to the significance of Una and the Lion’s legacy.
What’s more, 2oz proof coins are very rare. Previous coins issued by The Royal Mint with the same precious metal weight have been to a bullion specification, so this superior proof finish is certain to add even more interest to what’s already a highly collectible coin.
Original coins are near impossible to find – a fact that makes the Una and the Lion design highly desirable. Just 400 original coins were ever struck, making it one of the most limited coins ever issued.
It won’t surprise you to know that original Una and the Lion coins are so sought-after that they’ve been known to fetch as much as £340,000 on the secondary market.
Considering its popularity, the brand new 2oz version has a surprisingly low edition limit. Just 3,000 single coins have been issued worldwide – surely not enough to meet demand, especially since originals are so scarce.
