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. The new 2008 – 2015 £1 coins have no rim beading on either side.
The reverse designs in the capital cities series by Stuart Devlin show the four official badges of the capital cities of the United Kingdom. This coin has magnified images of the London badge.
The edge reads DOMINE DIRIGE NOS which translates as 'Lord, direct us'.
