Regular price $5,995.00 Sale

Designed to commemorate the beginning of Queen Victoria’s reign in 1837, the Una & Lion gold crown is often thought of as among the top five most beautiful coins ever struck. First issued in 1839 - 180 years ago – Una & Lion has inspired many mints and artists since - but never before has a legal tender coin borne an exact replica of that classic reverse design. Until now...

Digitally scanned from a genuine and original Una & Lion proof, and then struck with meticulous precision, this Alderney legal tender coin was personally approved by the Queen to be an exact copy of the original Una & Lion design – even including the original Roman Numeral for the date, 1839 – MDCCCXXXIX!

Struck from a massive 40 grams of 22 carat gold, each Una & Lion within the mintage of just 400 coins has been independently graded. The examples available here were declared as PF69 – as close to perfection as you can get!
