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

Reverse: Painted about 75 years after the Battle of Waterloo, the artist Robert Alexander Hillingford depicted the Duke on horseback spurring on his weary soldiers with words of encouragement before the next wave of French attacks.

The Battle of Waterloo was fought on 18 June 1815, in present-day Belgium. It ended with a decisive and complete victory for the British and their allies, but it is important to remember that the outcome was in doubt right up until the end. Wellington himself described it as “the nearest-run thing you ever saw in your life”.
Hillingford’s painting captures a moment in the war when the outcome was far from certain. Wellington encourages his exhausted men to stand firm against the odds by reminding them of the adulation that they will receive back home.
