British coin collectors............


Recommended Posts

I found this commerative recently from a reputable seller, but don't know the coin. I understand it is a quarter ounce of gold, and it was minted in 2000. Anyone know anything more like if the UK government minted it, and anything else? thanks!

It's beautiful what ever it is. The image of the woman with the lion I’ve seen on another coin but can’t remember the facts about it.

I don't know who minted it but it wasn't the UK mint.


It uses the `Una and The Lion' design, famous as the Gold proof £5 coin of 1839. Only 400 pieces minted. Exceedingly rare and exceedingly expensive when ever it does come onto the market.


Here's an image of a replica `Una' which is pretty much bang on for detail. Of course, it contained nearly 1.2 ounces of gold.
