Coin Story

The $15 Queen of Spades coin is the second coin in the fascinating "Playing Card Money series". The name G DE PARIS that appears at the bottom is likely the name of the original artist, while the name PALLAS is believed to have been inspired by the Greek goddess Athena or Joan of Arc. The inscription on the back of the card suggests the Queen of Spades was valued at one hundred livres. Unique rectangular coin shape echoes the form and design of 18th-century playing cards. Superb engraving, combined with colour and selective gold plating on the edge of the coin.

The reveres features a classic Queen of Spades playing card. Parts of the character are coloured, the rest is finely engraved into the background. The edges of the coin are gold-plated.

Obverse Design

The obverse of the coin features the an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
