He seems to be into creating movement with a still picture. I like his style.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Yes, his handover design is very fluid, and as realistic as it is symbolic.

Jonathan also designed the reverse of the UK 2013 Coronation commemorative 5 ounce coin.

The coin has a face value of 10 pounds.

In the words of the Royal Mint:

His design features Westminster Abbey as the backdrop.

The Sovereign's Orb and the Sceptre with Cross appear in the foreground.

The design captures the majesty of the occasion and the location's impressive architecture.
