** 2022 Una and the Lion**

Coins - World | Kepi

Hi Fellow Collectors! This is the latest design in an annual coin series that I collect. It's the 2022 "Una and the Lion", a 1oz. Silver Proof coin. It has a diameter of 38.6 mm and a mintage of 1,500... Mine is #123! The designer of this coin is Glyn Davies and is produced by the East India Company and the Government of St. Helena with Royal Approval of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth ll. I love this series as it reminds me of my big ol' Golden Retriever/ Great Dane, who has now been gone almost two years. Now, let me tell you the Medieval story of Una, a beautiful princess on a quest to save her parents from a dragon who has them imprisoned in a tower. She enters a dark forest where she encounters a fierce lion who is immediately captivated by her beauty and innocence and his rage is replaced by wonder. He, as my ol' boy did, become her faithful companion, forever by her side to protect her from harm. It's the powerful connection and mutual adoration of this ancient legend that has captured my heart. Many thanks thanks for reading my blog! Comments are always welcome.
