Probably his best known and loved designs are the reverses of the Rhodesia and Nyasaland halfpenny and penny. These were first issued in 1955. His charming dancing elephants are a favourite with many.

In 1989 the UK issued a special sovereign to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the sovereign. The obverse and reverse design were used only on this one occasion, and were created by Bernard Sindall. They are modern adaptations of the original sovereign design of 1489.

The obverse shows Elizabeth seated on a throne facing forwards, with the reverse depicting the Royal Arms shield topped with the Royal Crown and superimposed on a double rose. Before and after 1989, the standard design of St George and the Dragon was used for the sovereign.

Mont Orgueil Castle, Jersey.





Mr Sindall designed the reverse of the 1977 Jersey 25 pence coin, issued to mark the Queen's Silver Jubilee (50 years as monarch). It depicts Mont Orgueil Castle and Gorey Harbour.
