UK Royal Arms Shield £1

£1-Royal-Arms-Shield

UK Royal Arms Shield £1

First issued in 2008, this redesigned £1 coin features the Royal Shield of Arms on the reverse - designed by Timothy Noad.

The edge inscription in Latin reads DECUS ET TUTAMEN which translates as; An Ornament and a Safeguard. This dates back to the first machine struck coins minted in 1662 and refers to the inscription itself which was intended to prevent people scraping valuable metal off the edge of the coin - a process known as 'clipping'.
