The Faerie Queene has a rich tradition of storytelling with roots based in mythology. On this coin specifically, Una is shown interacting with the Redcrosse Knight. The tale of the Redcrosse Knight defeating a dragon is a familiar story found in the poetry of Edmund Spenser, which is one of the reasons the tale may sound familiar to many people. This epic poem has influenced many fantasy stories found in pop culture today, so it definitely had a large role in laying the groundwork for the fantasy genre.
The obverse of the 2022 2 oz Proof St. Helena Silver Faerie Queene Coin shows the renowned portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, created by artist Jody Clark in 2015. Her Majesty is shown adorned in the Royal Diamond Diadem Crown, along with a lovely pearl necklace. Around the Queen, we see an inscription that reads “D.G. Regina, F.D, St. Helena”, along with the coin’s value and release year.
The reverse of the 2022 2 oz Proof St. Helena Silver Faerie Queene Coin shows Una and the Redcrosse Knight. In the background, the viewer will be able to make out a fairytale castle with a large dragon flying overhead. We can assume that the castle is under siege, so Una is shown appealing to the Redcrosse Knight to defeat the dragon and save her family.
