England: Oak Tree

The English Oak Tree £1 was issued in 1995 and 2000

The first reverse design series of £1 coins took floral emblems as its theme to represent the United Kingdom and its four constituent countries.

The second series of £1 coin designs used heraldic emblems to represent the United Kingdom and its four constituent countries. This coin features three lions to represent England.

England: Millennium Bridge

The Millennium Bridge £1 coin was issued in 2007

The third series of £1 coin designs depicts bridges from each of the four consituent countries in the United Kingdom. This coin features the Gateshead Millennium Bridge to represent England.

    I have chosen the ‘Three Lions’ design on the £1 coin, as it reminds me of that memorable day in 1966, when a group of men with the same insignia on their shirts walked away with a ‘World Cup’ !!!
