The Great Engravers Collection digs through 1,100 years of Royal Mint history to showcase some of the mints greatest designs from its long history. These designs come from engravers from all walks of life who have contributed to the artwork featured on British coins and other bullion pieces over a millennium of human history. In the debut design of Una and the Lion, the seminal work of William Wyon is featured. Wyon was the Chief Engraver of the Royal Mint from 1828 until 1851 and had started at the Royal Mint as an engraver in 1816. During his tenure, the kingdom had four different monarchs. Most of his career took place during the reign of Queen Victoria, with his Una and the Lion effigy of Her Majesty one of his best-remembered works.
The obverse of the 100 oz Great Britain The Great Engravers Collection Una and the Lion Silver Bars features Jody Clarks depiction of the Una and the Lion design. Wyons image captured a regal Queen Victoria walking alongside a lion with the monarchs scepter and orb. In Jody Clarks modern reimagining of this classic design, a beautiful Queen Victoria is featured in left-profile relief clutching the scepter in her right hand and cupping the orb in her left hand. The powerful lion is seated at her side, an ever-present servant.
On the reverse face of 100 oz The Great Engravers Collection Una and the Lion Silver Bars is the Royal Mint logo. The logo is featured along with engravings of the bars weight, purity, and metal content. Both sides of the bar have a delicate swirl pattern in the background field.
