With her parents captured by a ferocious dragon, our heroine Una begins a journey to free them, seeking out a noble Knight named Redcrosse. The first design in the Faerie Queene series is presented on this stunning 1 oz gold proof coin that features Una beseeching Redcrosse to save her parents and rescue their kingdom.
Our epic tale focuses on the romantic saga between Una, a beautiful princess and a Knight who pledges his life to her, defeating an evil dragon and fulfilling his destiny to become St George.
Directly inspired by The Faerie Queen, written by Edmund Spencer for Queen Elizabeth I in 1589, thought to be the inspiration behind Wyon’s iconic Una & the Lion coin design for Queen Victoria in 1837, this four coin collection tells a tale of romance, adventure, chivalry and beauty.
