Design details:

Two different obverses of this coin were minted one with the 1998-2015 portrait by Ian Rank-Broadley (only in sets) and one with the new portrait of the Queen by Jody Clark.


Drawn up some 800 years ago, the Magna Carta was a catalyst for a journey towards freedom for the ordinary man, in the United Kingdom and across the world. We mark this historic moment with a coin struck in celebration of the Magna Carta - the charter of freedoms.
