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.
