Picturesque Una and Redcrosse Imagery

Inscriptions surrounding the effigy include “ELIZABETH II,” “D.G. REGINA F.D.,” “ST. HELENA,” “2022” and “1 POUND.” This image of the monarch is recognized as the fifth definitive coinage portrait of the Queen, created by acclaimed British sculptor Jody Clark in 2015.

Reverse: The reverse features Princess Una as she makes her heartfelt plea to the gallant Redcrosse, who is seated upon a horse dressed in knight’s armor. A castle rises in the background beyond a dense forest, as a magnificent dragon is depicted in flight above. The inscription “THE FAERIE QUEEN” curves behind the princess, while the East India Company’s distinctive “EIC” Mint mark appears behind the loyal knight.
