What do the letters JB mean?

JB stands for John Bergdahl, designer of the Platinum Jubilee £5

The Platinum Jubilee £5 coin design was created by experienced coin designer John Bergdahl, whose previous work includes a wide variety of heraldic coin designs.

The design consists of the Royal Arms displayed within a royal mantle – a heraldic device often used on royal coins in the past. The detailed edging on the royal mantle was by far the most challenging and time consuming part of the assignment.

Over the past few years, I have been fortunate enough to be involved with a number of commissions marking royal celebrations. This one is certainly right up there when judging the importance of the occasion.

He is the man behind the 2015 coin commemorating the Magna Carta, which was inspired by medieval art and the seal that was used to formalise the great document.

For his 2016 coin marking the Battle of Hastings, he brought the famous Bayeux Tapestry to life, including a depiction of King Harold with an arrow in his eye.

He also designed a coin showing Henry VIII’s Mary Rose in 2011, showing the ship as she appeared in the only acknowledged painting of the iconic vessel, streamers and banners aflutter as the majestic ship takes to the sea.

His design for the Alfred the Great 2021 UK £5 Coin is based on the Alfred Jewel, a masterpiece of rock crystal set over gold enamelling, which is now housed in the Ashmolean Museum, the University of Oxford’s museum of art and archaeology.
