CoinGold Quarter Ounce 2022 Queen's Reign - Charity and Patronage

Like many other mints, the Royal Mint issues bullion coins in precious metals, having much higher intrinsic value than their face value. The quarter ounce (1/4 oz) gold coins are denominated as Twenty-five Pounds (£25).

The coins are legal tender but are not intended for circulation. They are targeted at bullion investors or collectors who appreciate the special editions as pieces of art. The coins are typically "one-year" types usually issued in parallel with other denominations with the same reverse designs.

This quarter-ounce gold commemorative coin is part of a range celebrating the 70-year reign of Queen Elizabeth II. The second design in The Queen’s Reign Collection, it focuses on Her Majesty’s charity and patronage activities.

Featuring reverse designs by the Irish artist and illustrator Patrick James (P. J.) Lynch, the coins in this limited collection of three UK coins honours The Queen’s contribution to society and the common good. Each of the artist’s designs feature The Queen’s iconic signature as a symbol of her personal commitment to the people of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.

The Mint says:
When a member of the Royal Family lends their support to a charity, this can help create an uplift in publicity and public interest for said organisations. Naturally, the patronage of Her Majesty The Queen is in high demand: from honorary military roles to those in support of small and large organisations alike, Her Majesty held 600 patronages at the time of her 90th birthday.

Some of Her Majesty’s associations are well known, including many that carry the name "Royal" due to their links, including the Royal Academy of Arts and the Royal Academy of Dance. She also champions the medical profession, remaining patron of the Cardiff, Manchester and Edinburgh Royal Infirmaries, and the Royal College of Nursing. As Patron of King’s College London and Queen’s College London, she highlights the importance of education. From the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) to the Royal Life Saving Society (RLSS), service to those in greatest need features strongly in her list of patronages, and The Queen even won her own RLSS Life Saving Medal as a teenager.

Obverse
United Kingdom / Gold Quarter Ounce 2022 Queen's Reign - Charity and Patronage - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin depicts the crowned old head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right, wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem crown worn for her Coronation (her effigy known as the "Fifth Portrait").

In small letters below the head, the artist's initials J.C (for Jody Clark).

Running continuously around the effigy is the monarch's legend, followed by the date of issue and the face value: ELIZABETH II · D · G · REG · F · D · 25 POUNDS · 2022 ·. Translated from Latin: Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith, followed by the value and denomination in English and the year.

Reverse
United Kingdom / Gold Quarter Ounce 2022 Queen's Reign - Charity and Patronage - reverse photo

The coin’s reverse design features depictions of Maundy money: a complete set of a fourpence, threepence, twopence and one Maundy penny, all dated 1953 - the first year when coins were issued in the name of Queen Elizabeth II. Around above left are shown their obverses, which have the Queens first definitive portrait by Mary Gillick, and the Queen's legend + ELIZABETH II DEI GRA: BRITT: OMN: REGINA F: D: (Elizabeth the Second, by the grace of God, Queen of all the Britains, Defender of the Faith). Around above right are the reverses, each depicting a numeral for the value, crowned with St Edward's crown.

Maundy money is a symbol of the Queen's charity; following a tradition established in the Middle Ages, every year the monarch distributes such coins to deserving members of the public - initially as a form of financial charity, and nowadays a symbol of the monarch's recognition of the recipient's contribution to society.

Below the coins, an element common for the three designs in the collection: the Queens handwritten signature, Elizabeth II, which is featured on a coin for the first time.

Around above, the inscription HER CHARITY AND HER PATRONAGE.

The designer's initials PJL, for P. J. Lynch, are below right.
