The circulating UK coins, excepting the two-pound coin, were redesigned in 2008, keeping the sizes and compositions unchanged, but introducing reverse designs that each depict a part of the Royal Shield of Arms and form (most of) the whole shield when they are placed together in the appropriate arrangement. The exception, the 2008 one-pound coin, depicts the entire shield of arms on the reverse.
A competition to design the reverse of the coinage was held in 2005 with the winner, Matthew Dent, 26, from North Wales, announced in 2008 and awarded £35,000.
Fourth crowned portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II facing right, wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland tiara.
The design depicts most of the second quarter of the shield, showing the lion rampant of Scotland.
