These special presentation proofs were struck in gilt copper at Matthew Boulton's Soho Mint Manufactory in Birmingham using the steam presses invented by James Watt. Boulton and Watt appear together on the reverse of the recently replaced UK £50 banknote.

The Latin legend translates as "George III by the grace of God, King" and on the reverse "of Britain."
