Description of obverse and reverse The obverse of the coin features the current portrait of the Queen by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS. Reverse: the coin features Matthew Dent’s ‘Shield’ design, introduced in 2008. The shield is part of the Royal Arms, the Arms of the Queen, an ancient heraldic device. The shield represents the home nations of the United Kingdom. Matthew Dent is a British graphic designer. In 2008 he was announced as the winner of a public competition to create a new series of reverse designs for Britain’s coins. He turned to heraldry for inspiration, and from the 1p to the 50p his coins each bear a reverse design of part of the shield of the Royal Arms. When viewed together, they make up the shield. That shield can be seen in its entirety on the £1 which was added to unite the series.
A brief annotation As Britain celebrates the safe arrival of the first child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, The Royal Mint commemorates a royal birth for the very first time with a range of products. Among them is this 2013 UK £1 Coin struck in sterling silver to Brilliant Uncirculated standard – ideal to celebrate the birth of the new heir to the throne or as a gift to a baby born in 2013.

Ну что ж, миниатюра интересна для любителей миниатюр. Изящнее была бы весом в унцию, или даже в две.

сделал бы монету в форме щита
Великобритания, хотя и помпезна, но не отходит от классического стиля, на радикальные изменения монет она не пойдет, думаю.

На вид - простая монетка: портрет, герб. Нет идеи.
