The current form of the Royal Arms of England, the coat of arms of the monarchy, was adopted in 1837. Following the death of King William IV, the Hanoverian hold over the throne ended with the rise of Queen Victoria to the throne. As such, the Hanoverian arms was removed from the shield in the Royal Arms and it was rearranged to take on its now-familiar shape of a quartered shield. Each quadrant represents a member state of the United Kingdom. In the modern era, this includes England, Northern Ireland, and Scotland. Wales, though a part of the United Kingdom, does not have the same status.
The obverse side of 2021 10 oz Silver Royal Arms Coins features a bust of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is depicted in right-profile relief and wears the George IV State Diadem Crown, a piece from the official Crown Jewels. The design element includes a guilloche background design element behind the portrait of the Queen.
On the reverse field of 2021 Silver British Royal Arms Coins is an image of modern Royal Arms. Designed by Timothy Noad, the image includes a quartered shield that is crowned by the Imperial State Crown. The shield features the individual national coat of arms from England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. The shield is supported by the two most important heraldic beasts in England, the Lion of England and the Unicorn of Scotland.
