After more than a hundred years hidden between the leaves of a book deep in the vaults of the Smithsonian Museum, “One of the most beautiful designs of all times” has finally been brought to life in pure 24-carat Gold.

George T. Morgan created this design while he worked at the British Royal Mint and took it with him as he ventured on his new career in the United States, meaning it was already in existence before the worlds is most known coin design – the Morgan Dollar. When you compare both designs, there are some instantly recognisable elements with the Lady Liberty – which makes the ‘London & the Lion’ motif, possibly the design that influenced what became one of the worlds most instantly recognisable coins – ‘The Morgan Dollar’.
