Each coin has a face value of £100 Pounds Sterling. Each coin features an image of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the front. the coin's legal tender value is also located on the front of the coin. The reverse side of each coin features an image of Lady Britannia. The image of Lady Britannia was first used on Roman coinage, during the period when the Roman Empire expanded up to Hadrian's Wall, and included England. Lady Britannia is standing in a long robe, holding a trident in one hand. In her other hand are both an olive branch and a shield. Encircling the coin in very small letters are the words 'Decus et Tutamen'. These latin words translate to 'An ornament and a safeguard'.
