UNA AND THE LION – 2022 2 Pounds 1/4 oz Pure Gold Proof Coin – St. Helena
The highly popular St Helena Una and the Lion series returns in 2022 with a modern reinterpretation of a classic theme.
Celebrating the heroine Una, an iconic symbol of beauty and honour, and her majestic protector – the lion, the 2022 Una & the Lion features a beautiful new design by engraver Glyn Davies. His elegant, determined Una and the 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 modern retelling of this ancient bond captures all the grace, courage and trust of the original story of this brave princess and the mighty beast at her side.
