The obverse portrait of the Queen by Ian Rank-Broadley was used on all UK circulated coinage from 1998 to 2014 and on many coins dated 2015. It was the fourth portrait of the Queen used on coinage.

The reverse design shows the Scottish lion rampant, part of the heraldic series by Norman Sillman. 

The edge inscription ‘NEMO ME IMPUNE LACESSIT’ is Latin for ‘no one provokes me with impunity (or ‘no one can harm me unpunished’). It was the Latin motto of the Stuart dynasty and also appeared on some Scottish coins of the 16th century.
