22-carat gold proof Nations Of The Crown £1 coin from the UK’s national mint. This collector's piece was issued to mark the introduction of a new ‘definitive’ One Pound coin design. In efforts to combat counterfeiting and add security measures, in 2016 The Royal Mint issued the last round Pounds. They were replaced the following year with new twelve-sided, bimetallic coins inspired by the old threepenny bit. There were an estimated 1,553 million of the original round coins in circulation in March 2014. Of these, The Royal Mint estimated that around 3% were counterfeit. The new 12-sided coin had a hidden security feature which would make it harder to counterfeit. This premium edition replicates the new design in 17.72 grams of attractive red and yellow 916.7 fine gold. The obverse shows Jody Clark’s effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, the fifth and final definitive portrait of Her Majesty used on UK coinage. The reverse features the new Nations of the Crown design, created by schoolboy, David Pearce. This shows national flowers within a crown with the denomination - ‘ONE POUND’ below. This piece is from a limited edition presentation of just 2,017 and is offered in its original Royal Mint presentation case with a numbered certificate of authenticity. A nice addition to any modern UK proof coin collection
