Gorgeous Coronation Britannia Design
Obverse: His Majesty King Charles III is depicted on the obverse, with the St. Edwards Crown upon his head. The surrounding field features an intricate guilloche pattern, along with the inscriptions “CHARLES III,” “D.G. REX. F.D.,” “2 POUNDS” and “2023.” The left facing rendition of the new monarch was created by renowned British sculptor Martin Jennings.
Reverse: The reverse features acclaimed British sculptor Philip Nathan’s interpretation of Lady Britannia confidently standing, with a trident, olive branch and patriotic shield in hand. Inscribed “BRITANNIA,” “2023,” “1 OZ” and “999 FINE SILVER.” The four anti-counterfeit enhancements to the design include a lined texture upon Britannia’s shield, a circular badge which cleverly alternates between a trident and a padlock, a light-refracting stippled background which imitates the movement of waves, and a thin frame encircling Britannia that is inscribed repeatedly with “DECUS ET TUTAMEN,” a Latin phrase which translates as the literal definition of its purpose as “an ornament and a safeguard.”
