Description

The two coat of arms depicted on the reverse of this coin are the personal coat of arms of both Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and her husband HRH Prince Phillip. The inscription around the crests reads ‘Honi soit qui mal y pense’ which translates to ‘Shame on he who thinks evil’. Incorporated into the design is Ivy to represent wedded love & fidelity along with Myrtle which is the Hebrew emblem of Marriage.

The obverse features the beautifully detailed Fiji coat of arms, a shield divided by the Cross of St. George with a lion at the top holding a cacao pod.  The four quarters contain sugarcane, coconut palm, bananas and a Dove. In order to maintain the exclusivity of this special coin Pobjoy Mint is proud to issue 2,000 in Proof Sterling Silver.

The Royal Arms we see today have evolved over nine centuries, since Richard the Lionheart chose three lions to represent England. On 1 January 1801, the royal arms of Great Britain were superseded by those of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland.  This symbol on the King’s shield would immediately identify him in the midst of battle. The full version of the Royal Coat of Arms is now used only by the Queen in her capacity as the Sovereign. The Queen has a separate version of her arms for use in Scotland, giving the Scottish elements pride of place. HRH Prince Philips’s coat of arms represents his lineage as a Prince of Greece and Denmark on his paternal side and his descent of the Mountbatten family on his maternal side. The Duke of Edinburgh’s coat of Arms was granted in 1949 and represents his lineage as a prince of Greece and Denmark. Incorporated into the coin design is Ivy to represent wedded love and fidelity along with Myrtle which is the Hebrew emblem of Marriage.
