Queen Victoria - Una & the Lion
The Story of 'Una and the Lion' has its origins in the epic Poem 'The Faerie Queen' by the Elizabethan Poet Edmund Spenser, who intended it as an allegory of the Virgin Queen Elizabeth I. Una represents innocence, honour, chastity and truth. In the story, her moral impeccability and all-round wholesomeness saves her from being eaten by the Lion, who is so impressed by her loveliness that he becomes her protector instead of devourer. The imagery in this story and the virtues celebrated by the characters was considered to be an ideal way of representing the young Queen Victoria and the British Empire. The 'Una and the Lion' gold 5 proof is one of the most famous and sought-after British numismatic rarities, and commands high premiums when an example comes up for sale. Anyone who wished to acquire one would expect to pay in excess of 30,000 to secure it.
Fortunately, this medallion set imitating this famous British coin can be yours for considerably less than the genuine article.
