One Pound 2016 Last Round Pound, Coin from United Kingdom - detailed information

One Pound 2016 Last Round Pound, Coin from United Kingdom (demonetised 2017)
CoinOne Pound 2016 Last Round Pound

The British one pound (£1) coin is a circulating denomination of the Pound Sterling. The coin was introduced in 1983 to replace the Bank of England one pound note which ceased to be issued at the end of 1984. The original coin was round and was made of nickel-brass. A large number of reverse designs were issued in this format until it was discontinued in 2016. These designs represented in turn the United Kingdom as a whole, and its constituent parts: England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

This last round £1 coin was meant as a "farewell" to the old format and issued in commemorative sets only (not for regular circulation); no coins of this type were issued into circulation. The reverse was designed by Gregory Kenneth Cameron, the Anglican bishop of the Diocese of St Asaph in Wales; it represents the United Kingdom and features the mythical "heraldic beasts" symbolic of each of its parts: the lion of England, the dragon of Wales, the unicorn of Scotland and the stag of Northern Ireland, with the Imperial Crown at centre.

A new 12-sided bimetallic £1 coin was introduced into circulation in the United Kingdom on 28th March 2017, and the earlier round coins were demonetised on 15th October 2017.

Coins of this type were not issued into regular circulation.

The reverse represents the United Kingdom and features the mythical "heraldic beasts" symbolic of each of its parts; the coin is divided into four sectors, showing respectively (clockwise from top) the lion of England, the unicorn of Scotland, the stag of Northern Ireland and the dragon of Wales - each beast slightly overlapping into a neighbouring sector. The Imperial Crown (Saint Edward’s crown) is in a diamond at centre. The designer's initials GKC (for Gregory Kenneth Cameron) are in the field under the Welsh dragon.

The value ONE is around above, and the denomination POUND is around below.
