The obverse of this coin features the familiar fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
This was designed by world-renowned artist Jody Clark. In this design, the Queen is featured in the King George IV Diadem and Diamond Jubilee drop pearl earrings.
For the first time since the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee back in 2012, the reverse of the 2022 Sovereign features an alternative design to George slaying the Dragon.
The Royal Coat of Arms adorns the reverse, in celebration of the Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee. This in itself, should make the coin more collectable than usual.
The central shield design is split into quarters, representing the symbols of Ireland, Scotland and England. Wales was already integral to England before the Act of Union.
The bottom left quadrant features an Irish harp, the upper right the Scottish royal lion symbol, and the other two quadrants display the 3 guardian Lion of England.
On the right hand side of the shield stands a chained Unicorn of Scotland and on the left stands the Lion of England. The unicorn is chained as myth states that a free Unicorn was a dangerous beast.
