On the obverse of 2018 1 oz British Silver Royal Arms of England Gibraltar Reverse Proof Coins is the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty wears the Royal Diadem crown in this third-generation design created for the Royal Mint of England in 1984 by Raphael Maklouf.
The reverse of all 2018 British Silver Royal Arms of England Gibraltar Coins is the Royal Arms of England. This is the first design adopted as the official Royal Arms of the Kingdom of England. Designed during the 1189-1199 reign of King Richard I, the shield bears the famed Three Lions in passant guardant stance.
King Richard I, or Richard the Lionheart, was just the second king in the House of Plantagenet following his father King Henry II’s ascension to the throne in 1154. Richard I’s Royal Arms of England would be used unchanged for 200 years after his reign and it became synonymous with the King of England.
