Royal Arms Design
This is the first Royal Arms coin to feature King Charles III on its obverse, as depicted by designer Martin Jennings.
The obverse features the Royal Arms design by Timothy Noad, actually a refreshed version of the image used on the reverse of the 2015 Gold £1 coin. The Royal Coat of Arms are the official coat of arms of the British Monarch and are will be recognisable to us all as they’re used on regular currency coinage, passports and official documents. The Arms represent the history and strength of the UK monarchy.
The central shield image is split into four, with each quarter representing UK nations. The first and third quarters depict the three passant guardant lions of England, the second Scotland’s rampant lion and the third reflects the harp of Ireland. A crowned lion and chained Unicorn flank the shield with the wording “HONI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE” ribboned below – latin for ‘Shame on he who thinks evil on it’. Below the shield are a depiction of the Irish Shamrock, Scottish thistle, Welsh leek and English rose.
The year of issue is displayed at the top with the weight, precious metal and fineness confirmed below.
Our Expert Opinion
The familiarity and majestic design of the Royal Coat of Arms, once seen on medieval battlefields marking banners
and shields, makes the Royal Arms a very popular design. This enduring emblem has signified royalty and strength
for centuries and it’s limited mintage numbers encourages buyers to act quickly.
We expect this coin to follow on from last year’s popularity as the coin appeals to both UK investors with the coin being tax free, and also overseas collectors who are drawn to the intricate British design.
