In 1839, the Royal Mint of England issued a new 5 Pound gold coin design that was, at the time, revolutionary. The Una and the Lion design featured an effigy of Queen Victoria as Lady Una, the first time a British monarch was cast in the role of a mythical figure in the design of national coinage.
This coin was designed by William Wyon to honor the start of Queen Victoria’s reign, which had occurred two years earlier in 1837. It was struck in low numbers and offered over a brief period of time with numerous variations in metals, design elements, and reeded/non-reeded edges.
Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse of 2022 1 oz Proof St. Helena Silver Una and the Lion Coins. This design features Her Majesty at the age of 89 wearing the George IV State Diadem. Jody Clark created this fifth-generation effigy in 2015.
In the reverse design of 2022 Proof St. Helena Silver Una and the Lion Coins, the mint features the all-new, modern interpretation of Una and the Lion. Here, Una and the Lion are seated facing one another with a close-up perspective on the faces of the two figures. This side of the coin has a selective 24-karat gold plating that appears on the figures of Una and the Lion.
These 2022 1 oz Proof St. Helena Silver Una and the Lion Coins arrive in a presentation box with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. As proof coins, each one boasts frosted designs and mirrored fields.
