Stunning Contemporary Chinese Dragon Dollar

Obverse: The obverse is adorned with a gorgeously lifelike, right facing portrait of the current British monarch, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Surrounding inscriptions include "QUEEN ELIZABETH II," "ST. HELENA," "ONE POUND" and "2021." This rendition of the Queen represents the fifth definitive coinage portrait of the monarch. The image is the work of artist Jody Clark, an award-winning sculptor/engraver for The Royal Mint since 2012.

Reverse: The reverse features the graceful, serpentine form of a Chinese style dragon, as it coils itself around a stylized globe in the background. The powerful, legendary creature is depicted with a pearl in its grasp, a symbol for wisdom and enlightenment in Chinese culture. The inscription "TRADE DOLLAR" sweeps overhead.
