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.

smartminting® (Ultra High Relief)

This unique and special edition of Napoleon coins are a fitting tribute to the 200th Anniversary of his passing. Very few leaders in world history have had such an impact. What would the world look like if he would have won at Waterloo?

These coins are issued by the island of Saint Helena. Saint Helena is a British territory located in the South Atlantic Ocean 1870 km away from the coast of South Africa. It is here where Napoleon spent the last 6 years of his life living in exile. Even while in exile, he studied English with the goal of being able to read English newspapers and books. He was a natural born leader from a very young age and these four coins uniquely capture a time in his life when his life had no boundaries.

The coins show designs that capture a youthful Napoleon in ultra high relief detail, quite different than the traditional images that exist. His strong features as well as his aspiring expression on his face hints at the extraordinary future he will eventually have. Behind him is the Arc de Triomphe which has been a fitting legacy monument to his greatness. Around the outside edge are his lifetime milestones which list the many reasons he was so heralded.

There will be a silver 2 oz and a 1 oz Proof. Mintage on the 2 oz will be only 821 and the mintage on the 1 oz only 1821. There will be a 1/4 oz gold Proof as well as a half gram gold Proof. Similar in design to the silver pieces with an extraordinary amount of detail and relief. Mintage on the 1/4 oz gold is a very small 500 and the mintage on the half gram is only 2500.

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.

Truth, the principle of being and acting truthfully. The allegorical personification of Truth is depicted as a glad-winged figure, holding a mirror in her right arm, symbolic of self-truth. Between her stands a child bearing a palm-branch, whom she comforts demonstrating the role of us all to protect the innocent.

Taking its inspiration from the allegorical figure of the virtue of Truth as depicted on the Victoria Memorial situated outside Buckingham Palace, our second design in the series features the words

VINCIT OMNIA VERITAS

UNA & THE LION, Beauty, Strength, & Honour.
The legend of Una & the Lion dates back to the 16th Century and Edmund Spencer’s epic medieval poem, The Faerie Queene. Una is a beautiful princess on a quest to rescue her parents from a dragon who has imprisoned them in a tower. She encounters a fierce lion whose rage is subdued as he is captivated by Una’s beauty and innocence. He becomes her faithful companion, forever by her side, protecting her from harm.

The relationship between Una & the Lion and the great coin designers began with the 1839 five-pound piece, produced to mark the first anniversary of the coronation of Queen Victoria. It featured a bold neoclassical design by William Wyon, whose Una & the Lion symbolised the young Queen Victoria harnessing the power of the mighty British nation, represented by the Lion. It is now recognised as one of history’s most beautiful coin designs, a legacy which continues with the East India Company’s annual Una & the Lion Collection.

The silver coin from the Czech Mint´s gift series with motifs of 12 signs of the zodiac will become not only a beautiful, but also a valuable talisman for everyone who was born in the sign of Cancer.

The constellation of Cancer was named after the ancient Greek legend of Heracles, who encountered a hydro and its helper - a huge crayfish, while performing the legendary twelve tasks. Crabs in human form are vulnerable like fragile aquatic crustaceans - they are compassionate, receptive and empathetic, full of emotions. In addition to the stars, they are also ruled by Luna - the Moon, which symbolizes the desire to indulge in feelings and instincts. Cancer life is devoted to helping others, but they are also happy to be cared for. However, both can grow into emotional dependence. Their protective place is usually home and they like creative activities.

The non-traditional oval coin bears a colored image of Cancer on the reverse side. Photographs or computer graphics were not used as a template for coloring - the coin's author, Asamat Baltaev, DiS., created an original watercolor painting. The relief in the background behind Cancer presents a disk with a dozen zodiac signs. The composition of the reverse is supplemented with the Latin inscription CANCER, together with the corresponding astrological symbol. Since the coins of the Czech Mint are licensed by the foreign issuer, the island of Niue, the obverse side bears its national emblem, the nominal value of ONE DOLLAR (NZD) and the year of issue 2021. All this is surrounded by twelve astrological signs.

The coin is stored in an elegant box.

France, renowned as one of the most romantic countries in the world, has an unequalled appeal to the world. Romanticism comes from the Medieval French word for Romance(meaning Legend or novel), from which the word "romantic" is derived. French roses are also symbols of love.The flowers are bright, so enough to impress the girl's heart, let alone a beautiful confession with bright roses, love is coming. The background text includes verses from several famous French writers: La vie est un sommeil, l'amour en est le rêve. -- Alfred de Musset L'amour est comme le vent, nous ne savons pas d'où il vient. -- Honoré de Balzac L'amour est la poésie des sens. -- Honoré de Balzac C'est cela l'amour, tout donner, tout sacrifier sans espoir de retour. -- Albert Camus L'amour fait les plus grandes douceurs et les plus sensibles infortunes de la vie. -- Madeleine de Scudéry SPECIFICATI
