The Royal Arms of England is the official emblem of the monarchs of England and dates back to the reign of the Plantagenet kings. The first official, accepted Royal Arms of England came from the second Plantagenet king, King Richard I. His Three Lions design is still near-and-dear to British hearts and plays a central role in the modern version of the Royal Arms.

The modern Royal Arms of England as depicted in the design on this face of the coin has been in use since 1837 when Queen Victoria rose to the throne. Each of the quadrants represents one of the three independent nations of Great Britain: England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. Wales is not represented in the Royal Arms because it was annexed into the Kingdom of England.
The obverse field of 2020 1 oz Platinum British Royal Arms Coins includes the fifth-generation bust of Queen Elizabeth II. This design was created by Jody Clark in 2015 and shows the Queen in right-profile relief wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown commissioned in 1820. In the background field, you will notice the guilloche design element.
On the reverse side of 2020 Platinum British Royal Arms Coins is Timothy Noad’s take on the modern Royal Arms of England. His design prominently displays the heraldic beasts of England and Scotland, the Lion and Unicorn, respectively. The two have been a part of the Royal Arms since King James I unified the crowns in one person in 1603. The shield in the Royal Arms is quartered with the Three Lions of England, Lion of Scotland, and Harp of Ireland all present in the quadrants.
