The reverse side of the coin showcases the royal arms designed by Jody Clark, surrounded by flourishes and national flower emblems. The lion and unicorn are rendered with realism, similar to the designs of the Queen’s Beasts series. The date ‘2022’ is featured on a scroll, below the words ‘DIEU ET MON DROIT’.
