1987 England Oak Tree One Pound Silver Proof Coin

1987 English Oak Tree £1 Silver Proof Boxed

Buy a 1987 England Oak Tree One Pound Silver Proof Coin

Taking inspiration from the national flora of each Home Nation and the stories they inspire, a new series of designs for the One Pound coin was introduced in 1983. The new coins, including this silver proof version, feature the leek for Wales, the thistle for Scotland or, as here, the oak tree for England. The oak tree is the national tree of England, as well as several other countries around the world. It symbolises strength, longevity and wisdom, and can be found across the British Isles. This coin marks the first time that an oak tree in its entirety has been featured on UK coinage. On the reverse, it shows a strong oak tree from branches to roots encircled by the Royal Diadem. Below the denomination 'ONE POUND' is transcribed. Around the edge of this silver proof coin is the inscription 'DECUS ET TUTAMEN' which translates to 'an ornament and a safeguard.' This design is paired with Rapahel Maklouf's portrait of Elizabeth II on the obverse, the third official effigy of The Queen. Comprised of .925 sterling silver and with a weight of 9.50 grams, this coin is finished to proof standard giving a better quality and definition. It has a diameter of 22.50 milimetres and is one of 50,000 issued. This £1 coin is presented in the original packaging from The Royal Mint, and comes with its certificate of authenticity.
