New floral £1 designs to complete the series

A design with a floral flourish for Northern Ireland

Timothy Noad has united the famous shamrock with the flax in this superb design for Northern Ireland, highlighted in the premium Proof finish that is a Royal Mint signature. Your coin, struck in 925 sterling silver, is housed in a sophisticated case with a Certificate of Authenticity confirming its low mintage of 2,000 and a booklet that reveals the origins of these intriguing national symbols.

About the coin

In 2014 two new £1 coins for Northern Ireland and Scotland complete the series of four that began in 2013 with England and Wales. The coins all feature designs by Timothy Noad, a professional calligrapher and a Fellow of the Society of Scribes and Illuminators. His designs continue the tradition of honouring the home nations of the United Kingdom on the £1 coin, incorporating familiar emblems with other less well-known floral symbols in one reverse design: the thistle and bluebell for Scotland, and the shamrock and flax for Northern Ireland.

The £1 coin for Northern Ireland is now available, struck in sterling silver. The sprightly shamrock is complimented by the eye-catching flax, the sprigs curving toward each other in a circular and balanced arrangement. The designs gleam with the lustre of The Royal Mint’s flawless Proof finish and are finished with the inscription, DECUS ET TUTAMEN ‘An ornament and a safeguard’. Only 2,000 coins will be available in this Limited Edition Presentation, each housed in a display case with a booklet all about the history of the flowers that adorn the coin and a Certificate of Authenticity to attest to the low issue limit and the Royal Mint Proof finish.

When national emblems are combined with wonderful artistry and the craftsmanship of The Royal Mint, the end result is quite remarkable. Timothy Noad has brought his own unique flourish to the £1 coin with his designs that honour Britain’s home nations. The minting skill that is applied to these coins enhances his designs, the lustre and definition of our Proof finish refining each and every detail. Even the packaging and informative booklets have been carefully created, our designers combining stunning images with patriotic words, poetry and lyrics, all combined to wonderful effect.
