One of the more revolutionary coin designs in the history of England was the 1839 depiction of Queen Victoria as Una from the famous English poem, The Faerie Queene. This design marked the first time a British monarch had ever been depicted as a fictional character. Modern interpretations of this classic work are alive and well on the bullion coinage of St. Helena. Provident Metals now has 2022 Proof St. Helena Una and the Lion 1 oz Gold Coins available to you for purchase online.

Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse of 2022 Proof St. Helena Una and the Lion Gold Coins. Her Majesty is featured here in right-profile relief wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown. Designed in 2015 by Jody Clark, this portrait depicts the Queen at the age of 89. The field comes with inscriptions of ELIZABETH II, D.G. REGINA F.D., ST. HELENA, and 5 POUNDS.
Una and the Lion are featured together in the reverse field of 2022 Proof St. Helena Una and the Lion 1 oz Gold Coins. This years depiction shows the pair seated next to one another as they gaze at each other. Una is set on the left and sits on a rock in right-profile relief as she looks at the noble lion. On the right, the lion is seated in left-profile relief looking up at Una as he raises his right paw ever so slightly off the ground. The field includes inscriptions of UNA AND THE LION and 2022.
In 1839, William Wyon created the famous Una and the Lion design for the Royal Mint. Used on a 5 pound gold coin, the design was issued in honor of the first anniversary of Queen Victorias coronation ceremony in 1838.
