The ‘young head’ portrait of Queen Victoria was first introduced on the half sovereign in 1838 and remained in use until 1887 where a new shield design was issued for the golden jubilee celebrations. This was then used until 1893 where the design reverted to St George slaying the dragon. 

The first sovereigns of Queen Victoria’s reign featured a heraldic shield on the reverse designed by Jean Baptiste Merlen. The Royal Arms are divided into four quarters, displaying the three lions of England, the lion rampant of Scotland and the Irish harp
