The Royal Mint of England can trace its roots back over 1,000 years to the founding of the London Mint in 886 CE. The Royal Mints Great Engravers Collection celebrates some of the iconic, classic designs from some of the mints greatest artists of all time. Chief among the new design options is the Una and the Lion design from William Wyon. Provident Metals has 100 oz Silver Great Britain The Great Engravers Collection Una and the Lion Bars available for purchase.
When you purchase a 100 oz Silver Great Britain The Great Engravers Collection Una and the Lion Bar at Provident Metals, the item you receive is new from the mint. Each one will be wrapped with protective packaging materials for shipping and arrive in a cardboard shipping box. The 100 oz silver bar in The Great Engravers Collection is the largest bar available among the four options. Other choices include a 1 oz gold bar, 1 oz silver, and 10 oz silver bar. Mintages for these other bars include 4,000 bars, 35,000 bars, and 6,100 bars, respectively. That makes these 100 oz silver bars not only the largest, but also the lowest minted.
Queen Victoria is depicted in the Una and the Lion design on the obverse of 100 oz Silver Great Britain The Great Engravers Bars. The design is based on William Wyons original Una and the Lion design, but was modernized for this series by Jody Clark. This image features Queen Victoria as Una with her loyal lion at her side. She holds the monarchs scepter and orb in her hands as the wind blows at their backs, pushing her locks of long hair and the lions mane in front of their faces.
In the reverse design of the 100 oz Silver Great Britain The Great Engravers Collection Una and the Lion Bars, the seal of the Royal Mint of England is featured. The Royal Mint seal is in the upper-left field and comes with the crowned Royal Arms. The Royal Arms is topped by the Imperial State Crown and has a quartered shield. The quartered shield has the Three Lions in the first and fourth quadrants, the Lion of Scotland in the second quadrant, and the Harp of Ireland in the third quadrant. The inscriptions include The Royal Mint and 100 oz 999.9 Fine Silver.
William Wyons design from the Una and the Lion release was one of his greatest in a long, storied career at the Royal Mint. He started as an assistant engraver at the mint in 1816 and moved to the position of Chief Engraver in 1828. He served in the role through the reigns of King George IV, King William IV, and Queen Victoria. He served as the Chief Engraver until his death in 1851.
