Buy a 2009 Shield Of Royal Arms One Pound Silver Proof Coin

In 2008, a bold new design for UK coinage was introduced by The Royal Mint. The reverses of coins between 50p and 1p were designed in such a way to reveal a single image when arranged together. Each of the six coins featured part of the Royal Shield, with the Pound Coin depicting the entire shield. From 2008 until 2016, this Royal Shield £1 was released annually, including this silver proof version from 2009. The Royal Shield is part of the Royal Coat of Arms which is used for the monarch's official flag, as well as by courts and governments around the Commonwealth. It features a quartered shield depicting, in two quarters, the three lions of England, in one quarter, the rampant lion of Scotland, and in the final quarter, the harp of Ireland. This Royal Arms has been in the current form since the reign of Queen Victoria. Around the shield design is the denomination 'ONE POUND' inscribed. An edge inscription is also used on this coin, reading 'DECUS ET TUTAMEN' or 'an ornament and a safeguard.' The obverse features Ian Rank-Broadley's effigy of Her Majesty the Queen. A total of 5,759 One Pound coins were issued in this silver proof format, and yours will come with its original packaging and certificate of authenticity. It weighs 9.50 grams and has a diameter of 22.50 millimetres. Struck in .925 sterling silver, this Pound coin is finished to proof standard meaning it is of higher quality and has greater definition than circulating coins.
