The first official Royal Arms was adopted in 1198 during the reign of King Richard I, the second king from the House of Plantagenet. Prior to the rise of the Plantagenets, the Lion was used in various poses as one of the early symbols of the monarchy in England, and even of individual rulers of the separate kingdoms that once existed on the island of Britain.
Richard I, better known as Richard the Lionheart, had previously used images of two rampant lions on his battle emblems and personal badges during the early part of his reign. In 1198, he adopted the well-known Three Lions as the first official Royal Arms of England. This design includes three rampant lions, each one golden in color and set against a field of red. Today, you can still find Richard I’s original Royal Arms in the modern Royal Arms as a symbol of England within the United Kingdom.
Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse side of the 2021 1 oz Gold British Royal Arms Coins. The Queen is shown here in right-profile relief in the fifth-generation portrait created by Jody Clark. The design shows Her Majesty wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown with a background field boasting a guilloche design element.
Created by Timothy Noad, the modern Royal Arms of England features on the reverse ace of 2021 Gold British Royal Arms Coins. This image includes elements of the monarchy and the United Kingdom.
