COIN INFORMATION

The guinea was once the most respected and internationally recognized coinage in the world. First issued by England in 1663, the guinea gold coins went through various designs and were issued by England and its many overseas colonies for nearly 200 years. The design of the famed Spade Guinea makes its return on a silver bullion coin issued for St. Helena.

Saint Helena is the issuing nation of these beautiful Spade Guinea Shield Silver Coins. Located in the South Atlantic Ocean, Saint Helena is a volcanic island that was first discovered by Portuguese sailors in 1502 and eventually came into British control through a charter issued by Oliver Cromwell.

On the obverse of the 2018 Saint Helena Spade Guinea Shield Silver Coin is the depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. This is the third-generation portrait of Her Majesty to feature on British coinage and was designed in 1985 by Raphael Maklouf. It is accompanied on this face by engravings of the Queens name, year of issue, the nation of issue, face value, and the name of the East India Company.

The reverse of all Saint Helena Spade Guinea Shield Silver Coins includes the Spade Shield version of the royal arms. The Spade Shield arose in 1714 by King George I, the Spade Shield reflects the recent union of the crowns of England and Scotland with the lions on the top half, and the merger of the House of Hanover (of which George I was Elector) is reflected with the white horse on the bottom half. King George III added the Spade Shield design to circulation guineas in 1787.

  1. Mphipps

    I really like the design on this coin,i think the queen’s effigy is wonderful,it depicts a much younger looking queen,the reverse of the coin is a lovely design for sure,my reasoning for giving 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the two small milk spots on the reverse of the coin,yes it’s bullion i know but it’s still very unsightly and annoying,it’s no fault of Martin i might add it’s just down to poor quality control from the mint,thanks Martin 🙂

      HI Mphipps,
      Yes sorry about that but it appears to be a tiny production mark on all the coins, as far as i can tell it seems to show up as a white spot against the detailed background behind the shield,
      Sadly not much i can really do about it but drop the premium to as low as i can possibly go which i already did.
      but as you say a beautiful design 🙂 sincerely martin
