Design

Wonderfully, and romantically, the effigy that appears on the full sovereign features a portrait of Queen Victoria taken from a contemporary medal, struck in commemoration of the 1840 wedding of Queen Victoria to Albert. The effigy is framed with a koru design representing the royal generations past, present and future. A lattice stained-glass effect symbolises the web of territories that Queen Victoria reigned over during the early peak of the British Empire.
