Two national icons, the British Lion and the American Eagle, have been beautifully brought together on a new bullion coin from The Royal Mint. Created in partnership with John M. Mercanti, Chief Engraver at the United States Mint from 2006 to 2010, the reverse design brings two mighty animal icons together in one harmonious composition.  

Powerfully conveying courage, strength and freedom, the British Lion and American Eagle embody the spirit of their respective nations. Instantly recognisable, these icons represent the shared values and enduring relationship between two countries that so often stand together.  

A unique collaboration between The Royal Mint and John M. Mercanti, one of the finest engravers in US coinage history, The Lion and The Eagle is available now in one ounce gold and one ounce silver bullion editions. 

  • The reverse design unites two national symbols – the British Lion and the American Eagle
