With a history that dates back more than 1,000 years, the Royal Mint of England has seen countless individuals hold the title of Chief Engraver of the Royal Mint. In a recent series of coins and bars, the Royal Mint of England has revived and reimagined some of the works of its Great Engravers.

Each 1 oz Great Britain The Great Engravers Collection Una and the Lion Gold Bar marks the first release of a gold bar in this coveted new series at the Royal Mint of England. The bars are individually sealed inside of blisterpacks that include assay information on the reverse, light-blue side of the card inside the package. You will also find that each bar is individually serialized by the mint with a serial number code that cleverly starts with “UL” and is followed by six digits.
Jody Clark, an engraver with the Royal Mint since 2012 who previously created the new fifth-generation effigy of Queen Elizabeth II in 2015, has now reimagined one of the greatest designs from William Wyon. Mr. Wyons was the Chief Engraver of the Royal Mint of England from 1828 to 1851. During his time as Chief Engraver, he came up with the Una and the Lion interpretation of Queen Victoria, the Queen of England and reigning monarch through much of Mr. Wyon’s time as Chief Engraver.
On the obverse of 1 oz The Great Engravers Collection Una and the Lion Gold Bars is Mr. Clark’s modern interpretation of the Una and the Lion image. Her Majesty is shown in left-profile relief holding a large scepter in her right hand as her left hand clutches the monarch’s globe. A powerful, subservient lion sits at her side as the pair looks forward into the future.
The reverse field of The Great Engravers Collection Un and the Lion Gold Bars comes with the Royal Mint of England seal at the top of the bar. The weight, purity, and metal content of the bar feature on this field, along with the individual serial number.
