Obverse: Depicts the fifth and latest effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark unveiled in 2015.

Reverse: The horses are seen galloping into battle, as their riders wield their swords high above their heads in anticipation of the fight that is to come. The painting has come to represent the pinnacle of heroism and has become so iconic that both Britain and Germany used it as propaganda material during the First World War!

‘Scotland Forever!’ has become one of the most popular paintings of the Battle of Waterloo. It depicts the heroic charge of the Royal Scots Greys, a British cavalry regiment. The painting’s title is the rallying cry that they shouted as they charged towards the French; ‘Now, my boys, Scotland forever!’ Elizabeth Southerden Thompson became one of the few female painters to achieve fame for her military paintings. In her autobiography, published in 1922 she claimed that “I never painted for the glory of war, but to portray its pathos and heroism”.
