Gold Ounce 2022 Queen Elizabeth II - Raphael Maklouf Portrait, Coin from Saint Helena
CoinGold Ounce 2022 Queen Elizabeth II - Raphael Maklouf Portrait

Saint Helena is a small island in the South Atlantic Ocean which is part of the British overseas territory of Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha. The currency of the island is the Saint Helena pound, fixed at parity with the pound sterling. The island has authorised some private mints to issue coins under its jurisdiction, which come in a variety of sizes - including in the popular gold ounce (1 oz gold) format, denominated as £5.

This coin is part of a four-coin set featuring the first four "definitive" portraits of Queen Elizabeth II which were used on the coinage of Commonwealth countries of which she was Head of State (the fifth portrait is on the obverse of each coin).

This design shows the third definitive effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Raphael Maklouf, which depicts the crowned bust of the Queen facing right.

Obverse
Saint Helena / Gold Ounce 2022 Queen Elizabeth II - Raphael Maklouf Portrait - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin depicts the crowned old bust of Queen Elizabeth II facing right, wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem crown worn for her Coronation (effigy known as the "Fifth Portrait" worldwide but "Sixth Portrait" in Australia, where the Queen's portrait by Vladimir Gottwald was fifth).

The Queen also wears the Coronation Necklace; originally made for Queen Victoria in 1858, it was also worn at the coronations (as Queen's Consort) of Queen Alexandra in 1902, Queen Mary in 1911 and Queen Elizabeth (the Queen mother) in 1937.

Unlike on British coinage, the effigy is "uncouped" (includes the Queen's shoulders). In small letters on the left, the artist's initials JC (for Jody Clark).

Running continuously around the rim is the monarch's legend, the date of issue and the face value: QUEEN ELIZABETH II · ST. HELENA · FIVE POUNDS · 2022 ·.

Reverse

The reverse of the coin shows the crowned bust of Queen Elizabeth II, facing right (her effigy known as the "Third Portrait"). The Queen is wearing the royal diadem which she wears on her way to and from the State Opening of Parliament, a pearl necklace and earrings.

Incuse in tiny letters on the neck truncation, the designer's initials RDM (for Raphael David Maklouf).

Below left, the EIC mint mark of the East India Company; the letters are separated by arrows radiating from the centre around which they are situated.

There is no inscription.
