Why does this 2022 Saint Helena Silver Una and The Lion proof coin belong in your collection?

The image of Una and the Lion made its first appearance on coinage in 1839, on a British coin commemorating the first anniversary of Queen Victoria's coronation. The personas of Princess Una and her lion companion, which are emblematic of beauty, strength and honor, are derived from "The Faerie Queene," an epic poem penned in 1590 by English poet Edmund Spencer. This silver proof coin features a beautiful modernized rendition of Una and her loyal companion.

  • This 2022 Una and the Lion coin was struck by the East India Company in London.
  • The 38.60 mm diameter coin contains 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver.
  • The coin is struck with a gorgeous proof finish.
  • The coin will arrive in its original Mint package.
  • The coin is part of a small 1,500 piece limited mintage.

Powerful Una and the Lion Imagery

Obverse: The obverse is graced with the likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, posed facing right with the Royal Diamond Diadem upon her head. Inscriptions include "ELIZABETH II," "D.G. REGINA F.D.," "ST. HELENA" and "1 POUND." This image of the monarch, known as the fifth definitive coinage portrait of the Queen, was created by award-wining British sculptor Jody Clark in 2015.

Reverse: The reverse features Princess Una and her lion guardian staring into each other's eyes, as if silently planning the next stage of their journey. The image is framed by an intricate, scalloped border containing the inscriptions "UNA AND THE LION" and "2022," along with the East India Company's "EIC" Mint mark.
