At Provident Metals, we invite you to experience a legacy of English storytelling dating back over four centuries! It all started in 1590 when Una and her lion were introduced in The Faerie Queene. Then coin designer William Wyon resurrected these characters with his iconic 1839 engraving. Today, the story continues with The Una and the Lion Series, which now enters its 4th year of release. Provident Metals currently has 2023 Proof St. Helena Una and the Lion 5 oz Silver Coins available to you for purchase online.

  • Delivered in a presentation case with a Certificate of Authenticity!
  • All-new design in the Una and the Lion Series!
  • Limited mintage of 500 coins!

  • A brand-new portrait of King Charles III is shown on the obverse.
  • Una and the lion appear in the reverse field.
  • Proof visuals.
  • Artwork by Glyn Davies.

All 2023 St. Helena Una and the Lion Coins in this Provident Metals listing online are considered proof strikes. As such, you will notice that the design has a frosted quality, while the background appears mirrored. The packaging for this coin includes a display case and a Certificate of Authenticity.


King Charles III is shown in a portrait on the obverse of these Una and the Lion 5 oz Silver Coins. He is presented in left-profile relief in an effigy from the artist Glyn Davies. Inscriptions read CHARLES III, D G REX F D, ST. HELENA, 5 POUNDS.


Una and her lion appear on the reverse of 2023 Proof St. Helena Silver Coins. The reverse also features decorative vines, a sun, and a stylish edge pattern. The inscriptions on the reverse field read 2023, UNA AND THE LION.


The first book of The Faerie Queene presents an epic quest narrative that has inspired numerous great works of fantasy literature. Central to the story is a fire-breathing dragon who has captured the castle of Unas parents. Desperate to help them, Una goes on a quest to find the Redcrosse Knight, who she believes can defeat the dragon. During Unas quest, a proud and angry lion is so struck by her virtue and beauty that he kisses her feet and joins her as a watchful protector.
