Powerful White Lion of Mortimer Design by Jody Clark

Both faces of this proof bear designs by Jody Clark. On the obverse is a right-side effigy of the longest serving monarch in British history, Queen Elizabeth II. She wears earrings and her Royal Diamond Diadem, which is the crown that she traditionally wears to the State Opening of Parliament in Westminster. Her name and abbreviated Latin title, "ELIZABETH II D G REG F D" (Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith) join the coin's face value, "2 POUNDS," on the rim.

On the reverse is Clark's rendering of the White Lion of Mortimer, which came down to Queen Elizabeth from the first Yorkist king, Edward IV. The creature faces right, wielding one of its front paws while balancing a shield with the other. On the shield, the white rose of the House of York i superimposed on a shining sun. Rim inscriptions offer the date, "2020," and the name of the creature depicted, "WHITE LION OF MORTIMER."
