1984 UK Coin £1 Silver Proof Scottish Thistle

This 1984 Scottish Thistle silver proof coin is the first in a series of four coins featuring a national plant of each of the four countries of Great Britain. This series was designed by Leslie Durbin, CBE.

Struck in 0.925 sterling silver, this proof coin comes in a presentation box with a certificate of authenticity.

1984 saw an innovation on United Kingdom pound coins. The nickel-brass pound had only been introduced in 1983, but it was decided to produce four different national reverse designs in a four year cycle, plus a "Royal" design in the fifth year.

The milled edge is stamped with the Llantrisant mint mark - a cross crosslet, and is inscribed with the motto of the Order of the Thistle. The Latin inscription is:


This translates to "No-one provokes me with impunity".

On 28 March 2017, the circulated round pound was replaced by the 12 sided £1 coin. On the 15 October the round £1 coin will cease to be legal tender.

The obverse of the coin shows the Arnold Machin portrait of The Queen which was adopted for decimalisation, and has been used on nearly all UK coinage since 1968. It continued in use until 1984.


The reverse design by renowned silversmith Leslie Durbin, CBE shows a Scottish thistle encircled by the Royal Diadem (crown). Each of the years 1985, 1986, and 1987 was to carry a similar design, each with its own national plant or flower within the Royal Diadem.
