The Spade Guinea was a popular gold coin first issued by the United Kingdom in the 17th Century. Made of approximately one quarter ounce of gold and originally worth one pound sterling, the Guinea became a potent symbol of Britain’s colonial power and a widely-used form of currency around the world for over 100 years.
The St Helena 1 oz Silver Spade Guinea, now in it’s 2nd year of issue, pays tribute to the historic spade guinea coin that was minted by the United Kingdom in 1787. The obverse and reverse design fields feature the distinct pattern of the East India Trading Company, representing the fact the the Guinea was traded widely by merchants on East India Company ships.

Saint Helena is a small British Island territory in the south Atlantic Ocean.
