UNA & LÕVI, ilu, tugevus ja au
Legend Unast ja lõvist pärineb 16. sajandist ja Edmund Spenceri eepilisest keskaegsest poeemist Haldjakuninganna. Una on kaunis printsess, kes püüab päästa oma vanemad draakoni käest, kes on nad torni vangistanud. Ta kohtab ägedat lõvi, kelle raev on Una ilust ja süütusest lummatud. Temast saab tema ustav kaaslane, igavesti tema kõrval, kaitstes teda kahju eest.

Suhe Una ja Lõvi ja suurte mündidisainerite vahel sai alguse 1839. aasta viienaelisest tükist, mis toodeti kuninganna Victoria kroonimise esimese aastapäeva tähistamiseks. Sellel oli William Wyoni julge neoklassitsistlik kujundus, mille Una & the Lion sümboliseeris noort kuningannat Victoriat, kes kasutas võimsa Briti rahva jõudu, keda esindas Lõvi.

Nüüd peetakse seda üheks ajaloo kaunimaks mündikujunduseks, mis jätkub Ida-India ettevõtte iga-aastase Una & the Lion kollektsiooniga.

Shortly after the death of Emperor Xian Feng in 1861, his concubine Cixi assumed control and ruled China as The Empress Dowager. Cixi was able to read, a rare skill at that time, and educated herself on domestic and foreign affairs, creating policies that would modernise China’s culture and economy. Recognising the importance of making international trade as easy as possible she instigated changes in customs, weights and measures that enabled the creation of a standardised ‘Dragon’ Trade Dollar.

Trade Dollars had been used to facilitate international trade since the ‘Spanish Dollars’ of the 15th Century, and the first ‘Dragon’ Trade dollars were struck in 1889 with the coin’s weight in English lettering sitting beneath a traditional Chinese dragon. Now, the Chinese Trade Dollar is reimagined for 2021 by The East India Company, our stunning Proof finish emphasising every detail of a new design that features a mighty dragon encircling the globe.

Drawing it’s inspiration from the presence of Angels on Napoleon’s Death medal and his tomb at Les Invalids.

Napoleon Bonaparte was born on the island of Corsica in 1769. He is widely regarded as one of history’s great military minds, building an Empire that stretched across Europe before his defeat at Waterloo in 1815. He was exiled to St Helena, where he remained until his death in 1821.

While Napoleon’s military cunning is undisputable, it is also believed that he carried a symbol of good luck with him, his own personal guardian angel.

The French Angel Coin first appeared in the late 18th Century. Its designer became suspected of revolutionary tendencies and was sentenced to death but somehow escaped the guillotine. Allegedly he bribed his captors with an Angel Coin, and it became known as a lucky charm. 19th Century French Naval Captains would refuse to sail without one in their purse, and even Napoleon was not beyond belief in the lucky Angel Coin. According to folklore he carried one in his pocket throughout his reign, only to fatefully lose it the day before his final defeat at Waterloo.

Its blue-centred blooms will catch your eye from May to July, when they add a punch of colour to meadows, bogs and open woodlands. New Brunswick's official flower is one of several Canadian emblems that were selected by means of public input.

With this stunning shaped coin, CIT combines the symbol of a scarab beetle with one of the most famous Pharaohs to ever live, Tutankhamun. His tomb opening celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2022.

In ancient Egyptian religion, the god Ra whose eye is also depicted on the obverse together with the Ankh or Key of Life, rolls the sun across the sky each day, transforming bodies and souls.

Scarab beetles roll dung into a ball. Because of this symbolically similar action, the scarab was seen as a reflection of the heavenly cycle and was representing the idea of rebirth or regeneration. In ancient Egyptian religion, the scarab was also a symbol of immortality, resurrection, transformation and protection much used in funerary art.

Over the ages, scarabs have been used to symbolize wealth, as currency, fashion accessory and also to serve as a form of artistic expression.

Thanks to the enhanced smartminting® technology this is a numismatic piece of art in a 1 oz silver ultra-high relief with an integrated crystal from Swarovski. It is decorated with two names of Tutankhamun in hieroglyphene style his own individual name and his title as a Pharaoh which was also found on his throne when it was discovered 100 years ago.

If you want everlasting protection or just a nice meaningful gift. This shaped scarab beetle coin will be both.
