There is also a silhouetted ship in the background. My best guess is that it is a Sheffield class destroyer. If so, it is likely to be or symbolise, the lead ship,  HMS Sheffield, the first UK warship to be sunk in the Falkland war and a former command of admiral Woodward.

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