It all started in 1590, when Edmund Spenser published his epic poem The Faerie Queene. In Book I, Una and her trusted lion are introduced to readers for the very first time. In honor of these beloved characters, The East India Company has released a new design in their Una and the Lion collection. This time around, they are depicted in a contemporary Art Nouveau style from the acclaimed artist Glyn Davies. Provident Metals currently has 2023 Proof St. Helena Una and the Lion 1/4 oz Gold Coins available to you for purchase online.

Each of these 2023 Proof Gold Una and the Lion Coins was produced by The East India Company in partnership with St. Helena, where they are considered legal tender. The coins are proof strikes and boast an impressive .9999 purity level. Upon delivery, youll find yours housed in a handsome case with a storytelling booklet and a Certificate of Authenticity.


King Charles III graces the obverse of these Una and the Lion Coins for the very first time. In this effigy from Glyn Davies, His Majesty faces left, appearing both graceful and dignified. Inscriptions on the obverse read KING CHARLES III D G REX F D, ST. HELENA 2 POUNDS.


Una and her lion are featured on the reverse of 2023 Proof St. Helena 1/4 oz Gold Coins. In this exceptional design from Glyn Davies, the pair are shown in a front-facing position surrounded by beautiful vines. Along the edge, inscriptions read UNA AND THE LION, 2023.


We meet the courageous princess Una in Book I of Edmund Spensers The Faerie Queene. The lion meanwhile is a fierce creature who becomes her noble companion on a quest to find the Redcrosse Knight. The story concludes with the knight defeating a dragon who has captured Unas parents. This famous scene is inspired by the legend of St. George and the Dragon.
