The British £1 coin that we all know, struck in 22 carat gold by The Royal Mint. The Nations of the Crown coin was released in 2017, with exactly 2,017 issues of this proof coin released for sale.
The 2017 proof gold coin is 12-sided and has been enhanced with red gold to provide its unique two-tone colouring. Typically, coins have a 180-degree inversion on the images between front and back, but this coin has medal alignment, meaning both images are the same way up.
Its obverse side bears the fifth and most modern portrait of Elizabeth II, as created by Royal Mint designer Jody Clark.
The reverse features the four national flowers of the United Kingdom. It was designed by David Pearce from Walsall, West Midlands. Pearce, then age 15 and in high school, entered the Royal Mint competition in 2015 to design this coin. His artwork depicts the English Rose, Welsh Leek, Scottish Thistle, and Irish Shamrock all originating from one stem within a royal coronet. Pearce was personally called by then Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, to say he had won the competition and invite him to No10 Downing Street for a tour around the heart of government.
The proof 2017 One Pound gold coin is provided in a handsome presentation box complete with the official certificate of authenticity.
