Eric Sewell


Eric Sewell was the Chief Engraver of the Royal Mint in the 1970s.

I do not know when he was born, nor do I know whether he is still alive.

Eric Sewell designed the reverse of the UK's first round pound.

It was issued in 1983 and featured the royal arms.

The wedding of Prince Charles and Diana Spencer took place in 1981.

Eric Sewell provided the design for the commemorative collector coin of the East Caribbean Territories.

He added a bird's eye view of the islands to the standard circulation obverse design of the Golden Hind.

Artist Michael Rizzello had supplied a design showing the royal couple, but it was not liked, so Mr Sewell quickly provided a replacement.

Do you know of any other coin designs by Mr Sewell? Did he ever design any medals for the Royal Mint?

I thought that would be the case, but I have never seen any biographical details about him.
