In the Queen’s Virtues Series, the allegorical figures depicted in the Queen Victoria Memorial in London are captured in beautiful relief on silver and gold bullion coins. The silver lineup is the most diverse, with BU and proof versions of the coin available to investors and collectors. Victory tops that memorial outside Buckingham Palace and is the first to feature in the series. The Winged Angel of Victory appears at the top of the monument, with statuesque representations of Courage and Constancy crouched at her feet. The remaining three personified virtues, Truth, Justice, and Charity, stand around the monument’s base. The second coin in this historic Queen’s Virtues series pays tribute to “Truth”.
Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse side of 2022 St. Helena Silver Queen’s Virtues Truth Coins. This portrait of the Queen is a right-profile relief based on Raphael Maklouf’s third-generation design from the Royal Mint. Created in 1985, this portrait is considered by many to be a timeless depiction of the Queen in which she wears the George IV State Diadem Crown.
The reverse features Truth, inspired by the statue on the Victoria Memorial. Truth is shown holding a mirror, supposedly to nature itself. She is comforting a small child who carries a palm branch, a symbol of victory, triumph, peace, and eternal life. The phrase “Truth Conquers All” borders the left top side of the coin, while the EIC privy mark appears on the lower right.
These 2022 1 oz St. Helena Silver Queen’s Virtues Truth Coins are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and come in tubes of 20.
