The obverse showcases a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II designed by Royal Mint engraver, Jody Clark. This is the fifth portrait of Her Majesty to grace UK coinage during her long reign as a British monarch. In 2018, Her Majesty’s portrait has been enhanced by a new guilloche design. “ELIZABETH II” is inscribed, along with the coin’s denomination.
Britannia, the female embodiment of Great Britain, stands tall on the reverse, designed by Philip Nathan. She holds Poseidon’s trident in one hand and a shield and olive branch in the other. The name Britannia is based on Greek and Roman geographical terms. This version of the Britannia coin also features an ornate border in a traditional oriental style. Inscriptions include “BRITANNIA” and the coin’s weight, purity, and year of issue.
Britannia first appeared on coinage in the Far East in the nineteenth century, making her a trusted symbol of the British Trade Dollar in that corner of the world. This special Britannia coin celebrates the expansion of the British Royal Mint’s bullion business to Asia. The figure of Britannia is surrounded by an ornate oriental border inspired by the Chinese-themed rooms at Buckingham Palace and the Royal Pavilion in Brighton.
