King Richard I is better known as Richard the Lionheart. He was King of England for just a decade in the late-12th century, but he left a lasting mark on the kingdom. The second king from the House of Plantagenet, he spent most of his reign abroad. Some of that time was spent in France defending Plantagenet lands and English claims in the region, while the rest was spent as the leading Christian commander in the Third Crusade in the Middle East.
On the reverse of 2018 1 oz British Silver Royal Arms of England Gibraltar Reverse Proof Coins is the image of the shield representing the monarchy that Richard the Lionheart designed. This imagery was used for more than 200 years by Plantagenet monarchs until slight changes came during King Edward III’s reign in 1369.
The obverse of 2018 British Silver Royal Arms of England Gibraltar Coins includes the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is England’s longest-reigning monarch and is depicted here in the third-generation design created for the Royal Mint of England in 1984 by Raphael Maklouf.
