The obverse of the coin shows the Jody Clark portrait of Elizabeth II. This is the fifth coinage portrait. The date appears on the obverse of the coin, for the first time since 1887.
The reverse features a special, re-mastered version of Benedetto Pistrucci's St George and the Dragon.
The garter inscription on the St. George and the Dragon reverse reads "Honi soit qui mal y pense", which is French for "Shame be to him who thinks evil of it".
This is the motto of the Order of the Garter, the highest order of chivalry in the UK. Read more about it on our blog here.
