The Jubilee Head Design
The Victoria Jubilee obverse design was adopted from 1887 to 1893. It was the second major portrait type of Victoria's reign.
The crown was still very much a currently circulating coin, as most examples of crowns from this period occur in heavily worn condition.

Obverse:
Jubilee head portrait of Queen Victoria, crowned, facing left. The engraver's initials T.B. appear raised beneath the head.
VICTORIA DG BRITT REG FD

Reverse:
The reverse features Benedetto Pistrucci's magnificent design of St. George on horseback slaying the dragon, first used on gold sovereigns of George III in 1817.
There is no legend on the reverse, apart from the date in the exergue.
