"Small head" pattern.

Young head of Queen Victoria facing left wearing ribbon (double fillet) in her hair; the hair is collected up into a knot behind; around, the legend VICTORIA DEI GRATIA (Victoria, by the Grace of God); the designer's initials W.W. (for William Wyon) are in relief on the neck truncation.

In the field below the neck truncation, the date 1837.

Obverse Inscription VICTORIA DEI GRATIA 1837
Reverse

The Ensigns Armorial of the United Kingdom within a plain shield quartered with the arms of England (1 & 4), Scotland (2) and Ireland (3), surmounted by a crown. A branch of laurel is shown on each side of the shield, tied at the bottom by a ribbon. At the bottom, the Thistle, Rose and Shamrock (symbols of Scotland, England and Ireland respectively) are placed with a small flower stop on each side.

Around, the rest of the monarch's legend (continuing from the obverse): BRITANNIARUM REGINA FID: DEF: (Queen of the Britains, Defender of the Faith).

Unlike the half sovereign coins, the laurel branches on either side of the shield have not been removed. However, the escutcheon with the Hanoverian arms has been removed. The reason for this is that the right to the Kingdom of Hanover was limited to the male line of succession and Queen Victoria did not inherit it. Its crown passed instead to King Ernest Augustus I, the fifth son of King George III.
