The 2022 Una & the Lion is the latest issue in The East India Company’s celebrated series. Each year this ancient legend is reimagined by one of the world’s great coin designers, giving the story of heroic Una and her devoted companion the Lion a fresh, contemporary twist.
Their story has been retold for 2022 by designer Glyn Davies. His elegant, determined Una and powerful but poised lion sit facing each other, staring deeply into each others eyes as they ponder their next move, seeming to communicate their thoughts, hopes and fears through their held gaze. His design captures all the grace, courage and trust of the original story of this brave princess and the mighty beast at her side.
This strictly limited-edition Gold Proof 1oz coin is presented in a bespoke case, every detail of Glyn Davies’ design carefully reproduced using a combination of expert hand craftsmanship and the best of modern minting techniques.
The legend of Una & the Lion dates back to the 16th Century and Edmund Spencer’s epic medieval poem, The Faerie Queene. Una is a beautiful princess on a quest to rescue her parents from a dragon who has imprisoned them in a tower. She encounters a fierce lion whose rage is subdued as he is captivated by Una’s beauty and innocence. He becomes her faithful companion, forever by her side, protecting her from harm.
