In 1839, the Royal Mint of England issued a groundbreaking design that reimagined the monarch of England.

The Una and the Lion design from the Royal Mint’s 1839 5 Pound sterling gold coin was groundbreaking in its day. It represented the first time a monarch had been portrayed as a fictional character on a British coin. The design was inspired by Edmund Spenser’s epic poem, The Faerie Queene.

In The Faerie Queene, Una is eventually accompanied on her journey by a powerful lion. The depiction of Queen Victoria on coinage as Una with a lion shows off the monarch as the leader of the kingdom, with the lion itself representing England.

The obverse of 2021 2 oz Silver St. Helena Una and The Lion Coins features a right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty features here in the popular fifth-generation design from the Royal Mint that was created in 2015 by Jody Clark. In this design, the Queen wears the George IV State Diadem Crown, a piece from the Crown Jewels that was commissioned in 1820, just 17 years before Queen Victoria ascended to the throne.

On the reverse side of 2021 2 oz Silver Una and The Lion Coins is a modern reimagining of Queen Victoria as Una from The Faerie Queene. In this design, Queen Victoria cuts a confident figure as she stands with a scepter in her right hand and rests her left hand on the mane of a roaring lion that defends her.

These 2021 2 oz Silver St. Helena Una and the Lion Coins are available to you for purchase with protective capsules. Each coin is available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and represents the first offering a 2 oz silver bullion coin in this collection.
