From the reign of Augustus onward, Lady Justice became an important allegorical figure in the Roman Empire. She was introduced by Augustus as a physical representation of the virtue of Justice that Augustus wanted his version of the empire built upon. Later emperors would continue to clutch to the image of Justitia, with Tiberius building the Temple of Iustitia in Rome, Vespasian minting coins with her effigy, and other emperors using her image to proclaim themselves as the defenders of justice in the empire.
The obverse of 2021 Antique Silver Gibraltar Lady Justice Coins features two heraldic seals. The larger seal is the Royal Arms of England with the shield bearing the coat of arms designs for England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland supported by the Lion of England and Unicorn of Scotland. The smaller shield is the coat of arms of Gibraltar with the castle of Gules and a key on a chain.
On the reverse side of the 2021 1 oz Antique Silver Lady Justice Coins is a depiction of Lady Justice atop a mountain range. Perched at the top of the world, she holds a sword in her right hand and carries the scales of justice in her left hand. She wears a blindfold over her eyes with a robe.
