Masterpiece 2021 Una & the Lion 2oz Gold Proof Coin
|Una and the Lion: Poetry, Poise and Power
William Wyon’s Una & the Lion was initially seen as quite controversial, as at the time there were no examples of current British monarchs being used in allegorical or narrative settings in coin design. But as Una & the Lion was designed for a celebratory £5 Proof coin, rather than a general circulation coin, Wyon’s creativity was given free reign and soon proved to be a resounding success.
It also quickly became coveted by collectors, widely regarded as one of history’s most beautiful coin designs but with no more than a few hundred ever produced by The Royal Mint. Full of beauty and grace while capturing the ambition of what was to become a powerful global Empire, it is a Masterpiece now made available to the modern collector through a combination of the ancient hand craftsmanship and modern minting expertise of The East India Company.
This limited-edition Gold Proof 2oz Masterpiece Collection edition features a faithful remaster of Wyon’s classic Una & the Lion, delivered in a luxury presentation case with an informative booklet and certificate of authenticity.
