The 2004 Scottish Forth Bridge is the first in a series of four national designs based on bridges by Edwina Ellis. The design celebrates the excellence of British engineering.
This 22 carat gold proof British one pound coin comes in a presentation box with a certificate of authenticity. Only 2,618 gold proof one pound coins were issued from a 3,000 coin mintage limit.
Since 1983, when the new pound coin was issued, the designs on the reverses of the pound coins have been changed in cycles of five years, one 'British' version, and four other designs each representing the four constituent parts of the United Kingdom.
The 2004 gold proof one pound coin with a reverse design by Edwina Ellis pays homage to Scotland. It features one of Scotland's most famous landmarks, the magnificent Forth Rail Bridge.
This is the first gold proof coin in a series of four original designs featuring bridges within each of the four home nations, and for the first time ever a modern gold proof one pound coin has been offered as an individual piece.
On the 28th March 2017, the circulated round pound was replaced by the 12 sided £1 coin. On the 15th October the round £1 coin ceased to be legal tender.
The obverse bears the fourth definitive UK coin portrait of Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley.
The Forth Bridge engraving is the first design in the British Bridges series representing Scotland. Designed by Edwina Ellis, this engraving is contained with a border of railway tracks.
