An automobile tire holds a metal rod from its center on whose tip a pound from 2012 maintains its balance. At the same time, a portrait of Elizabeth II who holds the record of being the longest-reigning British monarch. Below, an irregular marble piece waits of its inevitable fall.

On 2017, due to continuous forging, the coin was replaced by a new version supposed to be the most secure in the world. Nickel and copper based alloys with the portrait of the queen, the fifth coin portraying the monarch.
