Trafalgar Square was originally the site of the Kings Mews in London, a collection of stables for the kings carriages and horses. The site, formerly known as Charing Cross, has been Trafalgar Square since 1840 when construction on the public square was completed. The square celebrates the nations victory over Spain and France in the Battle of Trafalgar.
On the reverse of the 2018 1 oz British Trafalgar Square Silver Coin, youll notice the image of a giant Lion lying at rest at the base of Nelsons Column, which honors Admiral Horatio Nelson. Admiral Nelson led the Royal Navy in the Battle of Trafalgar on 21 October 1805 off the coast of Cape Trafalgar, Spain.
The obverse of the 2018 British Trafalgar Square Silver Coin features the latest effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is featured here in a right-profile design from Jody Clark which depicts the monarch at the age of 89.
These 2018 1 oz British Trafalgar Square Silver Coins earned Mint State 69 certifications from the NGC.

Those flaws are limited in nature to minuscule contact marks or hairlines, and limited in scope to areas outside the primary focal areas of the coins. The ER label indicates the coins arrived at the NGC within 30 days of their 2018 release from the Royal Mint.
