Designed by Glyn Davies, this modern interpretation of a classic heroine and her protector are beautifully captured in a striking pose representing beauty and power.

Exceptionally limited to only 499 coins worldwide, this 1/4oz gold proof coin is expected to be the rarest coins of 2020.

The story of Una & the Lion

Una & the Lion are the allegorical creation of celebrated English poet Edmund Spencer, author of The Faerie Queen in 1590. The iconic pair first featured on a British coin in 1837 with the issue of Queen Victoria’s majestic £5 gold piece and have long been considered symbols of beauty, strength and honour.

Una is a beautiful princess whose parents and kingdom are captured by a ferocious dragon. She sets out on a quest to free them from the dragons clutches, taking her on an epic journey of battles, adventure and romance.

During her quest she faces many challenges that tests her humility and determination, including being confronted by a fierce lion. The lion is so taken by her beauty and purity that he abandons his attack on her, becoming her protector and loyal companion.

Una enlists the help of a knight to help her slay the Dragon. Steadfast and true to her cause, Una’s virtues inspire the knight to slay the dragon and fulfil his destiny as the hero St George, the Patron Saint of England.
