Queen Elizabeth II features on the obverse side of the coin. Her Majesty is shown here in the third-generation Royal Mint design from her reign. Created by Raphael Maklouf, the effigy captures a young, regal monarch with the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head. On the reverse side of the Coin is a depiction of a single angel standing guard at a headstone with an “N” inscribed in honour of Napoleon Bonaparte. This is referencing the 12 white marble angles that guard his tomb in Les Invalides. There is an “EIC” mark on the bottom face of the coin.
