The St Helena Silver Spade Guinea bullion coin celebrates one of the United Kingdom’s most famous circulation pieces: the gold guinea. Introduced in 2018, the bullion series features a bust of Queen Elizabeth II on one side and the Royal Arms of the Hanoverian monarchs of England on the other side.

Issued by the East India Company, the St Helena Silver Spade Guinea Shield bullion coins replicate the appearance of the historic gold guinea. The latter coin was introduced in England in 1663 during the reign of King Charles II and the restoration of the monarchy following a decade-long commonwealth period following England’s civil war. The gold guinea was notable in English coining history as the first gold coin to be machine-struck. The last gold guineas were issued in 1799 during the reign of King George III.

On the obverse, you will find a bust of Queen Elizabeth II. This particular design originated at the Royal Mint of England in 1985. The portrait captures the Queen in right-profile relief wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown, a crown typically reserved for the Queen to wear on her way to and from the State Opening of Parliament.

The reverse includes a depiction of the design from the reverse of the original guineas. Here, you will see the spade-shaped shield with the Royal Arms of England from the reign of the Hanoverian monarchs. The shield is crowned by the Imperial State Crown. The quartered shield reflects the coat of arms adopted following the Act of Settlement when George, Elector of Hanover became King of England in 1714.
