      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.

      The 2021 1 oz St Helena Modern Chinese Trade Dollar Gold Coin is part of a range dedicated to “trade dollars” and is an artist’s impression of what a modern Chinese trade dollar would look like.

      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      The Queen also wears the Coronation Necklace; originally made for Queen Victoria in 1858, it was also worn at the coronations (as Queen’s Consort) of Queen Alexandra in 1902, Queen Mary in 1911 and Queen Elizabeth (the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) and extends almost to the rim of the coin; consequently, the legend does not run continuously around the rim.

      The artist’s initials JC (for Jody Clark) are in tiny letters below left.

      Around the effigy is the monarch’s legend and the date: QUEEN ELIZABETH II · ST. HELENA · 5 POUNDS · 2021 ·.

      Obverse Inscription QUEEN ELIZABETH II · ST. HELENA · 5 POUNDS · 2021 ·

      The reverse design shows a Chinese dragon encircling the globe, with the map of China highlighted behind its back, with the stars of the Chinese flag on the left of it.

      Around above, the inscription TRADE DOLLAR.

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