2021 1 oz St Helena Una and the Lion .999 Silver BU Coin
The epic tale of Una and the Lion is the creation of celebrated English poet Edmund Spencer. Written in 1590, the story has stood the test of time to become a symbol of beauty, strength, honour and endurance.
Una is a beautiful princess who’s parents and kingdom are captured by a ferocious dragon. She sets out on a quest to free them from the dragon’s clutches, taking her on an epic journey of battles, adventure and romance.
During her quest, she faces many challenges that test her humility and determination, including being confronted by a fierce lion. The lion is so taken by her beauty and purity that he abandons his attack on her, becoming her protector and loyal companion.
Una enlists the help of a knight to help her slay the Dragon. Steadfast and true to her cause, Una’s virtues inspire the knight to slay the dragon and fulfil his destiny as the hero St George, the patron saint of England.
