The Forth Railway Bridge appears on the 2004 one pound coin representing Scotland. This 2004 silver proof piedfort £1 coin is the first in a four coin collection based on famous bridges in the United Kingdom. Designed by Edwina Ellis, this coin celebrates the superb engineering that Britain is famous for throughout the world.
This 204 Bridges £1 coin is struck in 0.925 silver fineness and comes in a presentation box with a certificate of authenticity. The one pound coin is British legal tender and is free from Capital Gains Tax.
The 2004 silver proof piedfort 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 in the Bridges series that were issued between 2004 to 2007.
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.
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 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.
