William Wyon was the Chief Engraver of the Royal Mint of England from 1828 until his death in 1851. He was responsible for a wide range of designs throughout his career, but the most memorable was issued for Queen Victoria. His “Young Head” depiction of Queen Victoria was the longest-used effigy of the Queen during her then-record-setting reign in the 19th century.
Mr. Wyon not only created the Young Head design of Queen Victoria, he also created designs such as the effigy of the Queen used on the Penny Black stamp and the Una and the Lion design. Last issued on a British coin in the 1880s, the Una and the Lion design captured Queen Victoria in a manner she had never been depicted before.
In the obverse of the 10 oz Great Britain The Great Engravers Collection Una and the Lion Silver Bar, you will find an effigy of Queen Victoria from the tale of Una and the Lion William Wyon created an effigy of Her Majesty as Una in the tale in the 19th century and it was used on British coins through the 1880s. Her effigy as Una was recreated in 2019 for bullion and proof coins by the Royal Mint. For the first time ever, it features on silver bars for sale from the Royal Mint.
The effigy of Queen Victoria featured on the obverse of these silver bars was created by Jody Clark, the man behind the fifth-generation effigy of Queen Elizabeth II for Royal Mint coins.
For the reverse design of 10 oz The Great Engravers Collection Una and the Lion Silver Bars, the Royal Mint of England includes a depiction of the mint seal. The weight, purity, and metal content of the bar are also featured on this side.
10 oz Great Britain The Great Engravers Collection Una and the Lion Silver Bars are available to you for purchase brand new from the mint. The bars will ship to you inside of protective plastic sleeves.
