1 pound, Celtic crossThe design on the reverse shows a Celtic cross, the broighter torc and pimpernel, all of which are a representation of Ireland. The pimpernel is a genus of 20-25 species of flowering plants.
Broighter torc and bowl
The Broighter torc was part of a substantial lot of gold artefacts found by Tom Nicholl in 1896 in Northern Ireland near Limavady. The lot is known as the broighter gold or broighter hoard. It includes a 7 inch long boat, a torc and some jewellery. It was found while ploughing on a farm and was later sold to the British museum for 600 pounds.
Only the top part with the plus in the circle is the Celtic cross, the long column is simply a support.
