By 1980 it had become apparent that with the general decline in purchasing power, the £1 unit of currency was more appropriate to a coin than a banknote.

After consultation with many groups including retailers and special interest groups, the Government announced on 31 July 1981 that a new £1 coin that was to be issued on 21 April 1983.

This £1 coin was the first release of custom Wales Coinage for circulation. 

According to the Royal Mint, "The reverse design of the 1985 £1 coin featured the national emblem of Wales - the leek - encircled by the Royal Diadem. It was the second in a series of four issued to represent the four constituent parts of the United Kingdom; Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and England." This design was issued again only once, in 1990.

The edge inscription PLEIDIOL WYF I'M GWLAD means "True am I to my country".

Only 24,850 specimen grade coins were issued in these presentation folders.

The coin remain in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, preserved in the original Royal Mint holder, with the case like new.
