Banner of arms question.


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Received my 2021 double sovereign from the East India Company, upon further inspection I have noticed something interesting (to at least me ).  Left in the picture below is a 1989 sovereign you will notice in the centre of the double rose is the banner of arms for QE2.  

Right is the East India double sovereign, but the banner of arms in the centre is not that of QE2, It's Henry 7th banner of arms which would be correct for reproducing the reverse of the 1489 sovereign as he was the monarch of the time of the original sovereign.

Is it odd to have a banner of arms on a coin for the wrong monarch?  If not why did they not do that on the 1989 reproduction coin?  

 

Appreciate any feed back
