The modern Royal Arms of England carried by Queen Elizabeth II dates back to the reign of her great-grandmother, Queen Victoria. When Victoria ascended the throne in 1837, the shield at the heart of the Royal Arms took on its present design. Dropped from the design at that point in time was the coat of arms for the House of Hannover that had controlled the throne for more than a century.

On the obverse face of 2020 Gold British Royal Arms Coins is a bust of Queen Elizabeth II. This is the fifth-generation effigy of Her Majesty on British coinage. It was designed in July 2015 by Jody Clark and debuted on 2016 date-marked coins from the Royal Mint of England. The design captures the Queen in right-profile relief at the age of 89 wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown.
The reverse side of 2020 1 oz Gold British Royal Arms Coins features a design of the modern Royal Arms of England from Timothy Noad. The Royal Arms includes a quartered shield supported by the Lion of England and the Unicorn of Scotland, an element of the design that dates back to 1603 and the physical unification of the English and Scottish crowns with King James I of England.
The quartered shield itself features the individual coat of arms for England, Northern Ireland, and Scotland. The Three Lions of England feature in the upper-left and lower-right quadrants. The Lion of Scotland is in the upper-right quadrant, while the Harp of Ireland is in the lower-left quadrant.
