Christopher Hobbs is a well-respected painter, sculptor and illustrator with a background in the film industry. His paintings and sculptures have been displayed at the British Library and his mosaic designs were featured at Westminster Cathedral. He has worked with some of the world’s leading museums, including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
Christopher’s design was inspired by the heraldic rose of England and The Queen’s love of flowers. It features a central cypher, a heraldic device similar to a monogram that represents the monarch’s name and title, of "EIIR", which is surrounded by a classical wreath of celebration. The roses are more natural than heraldic, each one different from the other. Nine roses were used to signify the nine decades of The Queen’s life. The design has an oval rather than circular form to give more space to the central lettering and to add interest to the coin.
