The Royal Arms, a heraldic celebration on the grand silver Piedfort

The story behind the symbolism

The heraldry of the United Kingdom celebrates the history of four proud nations – each one distinct and diverse. Together they stand in the centuries-old Royal Coat of Arms, a symbol of authority. Explore the stories behind the symbolism with this beautiful £1 silver Proof Piedfort. Its double-thickness is a wonderful canvas for Timothy Noad’s contemporary Arms, while the obverse features the fifth definitive coinage portrait of Queen Elizabeth II – a true collector’s piece.

About the Coin

Heraldry has been bound up with British coinage since the fourteenth century. Dating back to battlefield banners, these national symbols of royal authority were celebrated on the very first £1 coins featuring Eric Sewell’s famous design. Once more we return to this theme, this time beautifully remodelled for a different era, a heraldic celebration of the diversity and the bond that unites the UK and a fascinating insight into the stories behind the symbolism.

This stunning silver Piedfort is designed to be admired and enjoyed, accompanied by a booklet that deconstructs the story of the Royal Arms intriguing elements. Struck to Proof standard, our highest quality finish, the double-thickness coin is adorned by a contemporary reworking of a traditional design. Heraldic artist Timothy Noad’s interpretation of the Royal Arms is designed specifically for the coin as a canvas, elevating the prominence of the supporters either side of the shield to great effect. Celebrate the four nations of the United Kingdom by adding this magnificent coin to your collection.
