Precious metal content is 8.51 gm. Of 917 fine gold net weight is 1/4 oz. The design of the 2001 Britannia is based on one of the world's most beautiful coins -- issued by Great Britain in 1839 featuring Una and the Lion. The legend of Una and the Lion derives from British mythology. According to Edmund Spenser, after St.
George slays the dragon and rescues Una, she accompanies him on his adventures. During their wanderings, she meets a lion who nuzzles up to her and becomes her faithful companion and protector. In Spenser's Faerie Queen, Una represents Truth and Purity, while, according to legend, the Lion symbolizes Britain.

Martin Weiss has been a leader in the numismatics hobby for over 40 years.He is perhaps best known as the individual who helped to make the coins of China among the most collected coins around the world. Weiss tells: In 1983, there was virtually no market for modern Chinese coins in the United States or anywhere else.
The People's Republic of China had only issued small denomination coins for circulation before 1979. Weiss's public relations campaign got the news of the new Panda coin (and his company's name-PandaAmerica) in newspapers throughout the country, and orders poured in. When the first catalogue of "China Panda Gold and Silver Coins" was published in China, Martin Weiss was the only American dealerto be featured. In addition to creating a worldwide market for China's Panda coins, Martin Weiss developed a series of Inventions and Discoveries coins with China, that was a PandaAmerica exclusive. Weiss also developed a series of gold and silver Lunar-Zodiac commemoratives for the country of Singapore and coins commemorating the 500.
Anniversary of Columbus' landfall in the New World for the Bahamas, all of which were successfully distributed exclusively by his company, PandaAmerica. Weiss contracted to distribute coins for the Perth Mint (Australia), the British Royal Mint, Israel Coins and Medals Corporation, Banco de Mexico, Monnaie de Paris, and others including the Olympic Coin Program of the United States Treasury.
Martin Weiss was the recipient of Professional Numismatic GuildZ39;s Sol Kaplan Award in 2002 for helping to cleanse our profession of thievery and for upholding the ethics that the PNG stands for. Weiss's imagination, get-it-done attitude, professional standing, and worldwide connections assure the success of his future ventures. In addition to his membership in PNG, Mr.
Weiss is a Life Member of the American Numismatic Association, and he abides by the Codes of Ethics of both organizations.
