Guernsey, 1981, one pound.  Guernsey lily.

Two species, Nerine sarniensis, which is scarlet, and Nerine bowdenii, which is pink, are known as the Guernsey lily.

Despite their common names (sarniensis means "from Guernsey"), neither is a true lily, nor do they originate from the Channel Isles. In fact, they are native to South Africa, though they are now naturalised in France, Madeira and the Azores.

Here's a 1941 trial strike of a Finnish 10 pennia. It comes from a site called Natko's numismatic pages. We have a member here called Natko. I wonder if it's his?

Anyway, the flowers in the design are apparently described as rosettes: stylised versions of roses.

Heraldic roses, actually, not something that grows on plants. You'll find them blooming all over England, but especially in Lancaster and York and touristy places such as Stratford-upon-Avon.

While called a lotus, the flower used for making the wreath is actually a water lily (Nymphea Caerulea (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nymphaea_caerulea)). The Egyptian lotus (http://www.touregypt.net/featurestories/lotus.htm) is the symbol for upper Egypt. Compare reply #75 upthread for a real lotus.

Peter

P.S. I looked up other specimen of this coin. It's not the light. The eyes of the mask are weirdly different.

Guernsey, 2 pounds, 1997.  The reverse design features Guernsey lilies. The design was the work of Robert Elderton.

This coin was included in sets only. The circulation coin was not issued until 1998. The effigy of the Queen appearing on the 1998 coin was by Ian Rank-Broadley. This coin shows the effigy by Raphael Maklouf.

A crowned thistle on the old UK five pence coins. After the word "NEW" was removed from the legend, a slightly amended thistle appeared on the new design. Can you spot the differences between the old and new designs?

There are quite a few differences in the 5p designs when you look at the two at that size, aren't there?  It's almost a new design based on the old one.  Presumably Christopher Ironside was commissioned to amend his original designs?

More obviously, the Britannia design on the 50p was amended but I think there are some changes to other coins too, particularly in the numerals (that's off-topic though).

I asked Mr Ironside's relatives, but they didn't know the answer to that.

More obviously, the Britannia design on the 50p was amended but I think there are some changes to other coins too, particularly in the numerals (that's off-topic though).

You might like to start a topic about that. People have mentioned changes to those other coins, but I have never been able to spot any.
