Striking Griffin of Edward III Design by Jody Clark
Obverse: Jody Clark's obverse design shows Queen Elizabeth II wearing her Royal Diamond Diadem and earrings. She traditionally wears that crown to the State Opening of Parliament. The monarch's name and abbreviated Latin title, "ELIZABETH II D G REG F D," are inscribed along the rim, as is the coin's face value, "2 POUNDS."
Reverse: Clark's reverse design shows the Griffin of Edward III balancing the shield of the House of Windsor. The Griffin is part eagle and part lion, and the shield features a tower with a flag at the top. Inscribed on the rim frame are the creature's name, "GRIFFIN OF EDWARD III," and the date, "2021."
Virtually Flawless PF69 UC with Queen's Beasts Label
