2004 British Gold Proof Pound Coin - Forth Rail Bridge

New One Pound Coin Series

Since 1983, when the new pound coin was issued, the designs on the reverses of the pound coins have been changed in cycles of five years, one 'British' version, and four other designs each representing the four constituent parts of the United Kingdom. The series of four national designs starting from 2004 is based on bridges.

Gold Proof Pound

The 2004 Gold Proof one pound coin with a reverse design by Edwina Ellis pays homage to Scotland and features one of Scotland's most famous landmarks, the magnificent Forth Rail Bridge.
This is the First Gold Proof Coin in a series of four original designs featuring bridges within each of the four home nations, and for the first time ever a gold Proof one pound coin has been offered as an individual piece.
The coin has a substantial weight of 19.619gms, which is almost three times the weight of a sovereign. Each coin is accompanied with a Certificate of Authenticity attesting to the worldwide issue limit of just 5,000, which is signed by the Deputy Master of the Royal Mint.

The Designs

It seems strange that the Forth design is the first design, but the 2004 pound will be the "Scottish" version, therefore will have a representation of the Forth Railway Bridge as its reverse design.
The next design, that for 2005, is the Welsh version featuring the Menai Straits Bridge in Wales.
