ROYAL ARMS - A mainstay of British coinage for centuries, the Royal Arms is a majestic symbol of strength and majesty which represents the illustrious history of monarchy and heraldry in the United Kingdom.
It acts as the official coat of arms for the British monarch and its origins lie on the medieval battlefield where it would be seen on shields, banners and dress. It has evolved through the ages and is a true indicator of power, approval and duty.
First appearing in 1983, the iconic design by Eric Sewell has been reinterpreted by Timothy Noad for 2019. This design exemplifies the royal heritage which each monarch inherits during their reign and features the heraldic devices which have lasted through the ages, such as the Lion of England and Unicorn of Scotland supporting the shield.
VALLIANT - The story of St George and the dragon is a timeless tale of honour, courage and victory. In 2018, The Royal Mint reinvented this tale for modern times and the overseas investment market on the Valiant coin.
Artist Etienne Millner has captured the image of St George in the moment of triumph, as he is slaying the dragon, in a contemporary interpretation of the ancient legend. Reverse frosting highlights elements of Etienne Millner’s bold design, whilst Queen Elizabeth’s latest effigy is incused on the obverse.
