About the design

Featuring the complete shield of the Royal Arms, the £1 coin is the unifying coin of the 2008 definitive reverse designs – from the 1p to the 50p – by Matthew Dent.

With a long history of featuring on British coins, in particular the £1 coin, it is not surprising that Matthew Dent chose the Royal Arms, and in particular the shield of the Royal Arms, as the theme for his innovative range of designs. The central part of the Royal Arms is divided into four parts: England being represented by the three lions passant guardant in the first and fourth quarters, Scotland by the lion rampant in the second and Northern Ireland by the harp of Ireland in the third.
