The Jubilee Head Design
The Victoria Jubilee Head obverse design was adopted from 1887 for silver and gold coins only, and was continued until the old head portrait was introduced in 1893. It was the second major portrait type of Victoria's reign, and was introduced for the golden jubilee (50 years) of Queen Victoria's reign. She acceded to the throne in 1837.
The crown was still very much a currently circulating coin, as most examples of crowns from this period occur in heavily worn condition.

Victoria's Jubilee portrait, more mature, facing left, wearing a small coronet. The engraver's initials J.E.B. appear raised on the truncation of the shoulder.

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. The initials B.P. appear in the exergue to the right of the date.
There is no legend on the reverse,apart from the date 1892 in the exergue.

The edge is milled (reeded)
