The story of Una and the Lion has been a source of inspiration for many centuries and its unique qualities have inspired a new bullion bar range from The Royal Mint. The intriguing tale, laden with symbolic meaning, has been chosen many times as a compelling subject for artistic interpretation. Una and the Lion notably appeared as a beautiful coin design created by famed engraver William Wyon.  

This bullion bar design is inspired by the poem The Faerie Queene by Edmund Spenser. The epic poem follows the adventures of several knights to illustrate different virtues. Along the way, Spenser introduces Una, the daughter of a king and queen imprisoned by a dragon. On her quest to free her parents she comes across a lion. Una’s beauty and innocence becalm the beast, so instead of devouring the princess, the lion becomes her champion.  

The Una and the Lion bar is available in a range of precious metals and has been tested to rigorous standards through an independent quality assurance process.  

  • Features a new interpretation of the Una and the Lion story, minted on a bullion bar  
  • A contemporary design in a series of bullion bars inspired by Una and the Lion  
  • An inscription on the bar reads ‘DIRIGE DEUS GRESSUS MEOS’, which translates to ‘May God direct my steps’  
  • The design is minted in one ounce of 999.9 silver 
  • The first landscape orientated bar to be designed and produced by The Royal Mint
  • Front side design created by Jody Clark
