Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse of 2022 Proof St. Helena Una and the Lion Silver Coins. This is the fifth-generation portrait of the Queen and was designed in 2015 by Jody Clark. The final image of Her Majesty to grace British, Commonwealth, or territorial coinage, this design shows the Queen at the age of 89 wearing the George IV State Diadem. Inscriptions include ELIZABETH II, D.G. REGINA F.D., ST. HELENA, and 5 POUNDS.
In the reverse design of 2022 Proof Una and the Lion 5 oz Silver Coins, designer Glyn Davies offers a beautiful, modern image of Una and the Lion. Based on William Wyons 1839 concept, this depiction shows Una seated in right-profile relief gazing at the Lion that is seated in left-profile relief across from her within the design. Inscriptions include UNA AND THE LION and 2022.
The original Una and the Lion design was created by Wyon to honor the start of Queen Victorias reign, with the design issued in 1839, two years after Victorias reign began in 1837. The concept of the images comes from the epic poem The Faerie Queene by English author Edmund Spenser.
