UK Great Britain 5 pence {3rd portrait; small type} FEATURING front: a crowned thistle (formally, The Badge of Scotland, a thistle royally crowned) Thistle is the common name of a group of flowering plants characterised by leaves with sharp prickles. Prickles often occur all over the plant – on surfaces such as those of the stem and flat parts of leaves. These are an adaptation that protects the plant against herbivorous animals, discouraging them from feeding on the plant. Typically, an involucre with a clasping shape of a cup or urn subtends each of a thistle's flowerheads. Thistle is the floral emblem of Scotland, as well as the emblem of the Encyclopædia Britannica. back: The head of Queen Elizabeth II, facing right, wearing the George IV State Diadem Lettering: ELIZABETH II D·G·REG·F·D·1992 RDM • quantity 1 pair • polished Copper-nickel coin • diameter: 18 mm • weight: 3.25 g Ear wires SILVER COLOR • Style: fishhook earrings with 3mm ball and coil • Metal: surgical steel for sensitive ears (plain with no finish) • Length: 20 mm top to bottom of open loop in front • Gauge: 21 gauge • rubber stoppers included
