The Third Tudor Rose Dish 1967 - 1984

The most significant inscriptions on this dish concern the conversion of the currency. When decimal currency was

introduced in 1971, an old half-crown was embedded in the silver. To mark the Queen’s Silver Jubilee in 1977 a commemorative Jubilee coin was added to the dish, and when the new one pound coins were introduced, one was included in the 1983 inscription.

In 1974 two General Elections were held in one year, and 1975 marked the first Referendum ever held, which confirmed membership of the European Economic Community.

Among the royal occasions noted are two royal weddings, chat of Princess Anne in 1973, and Prince Charles to Lady Diana Spencer in 1981.

Margaret Thatcher became the first woman Prime Minister

in 1979, and in 1982, under her premiership, a British Task Force recaptured the Falkland Islands from Argentina.

In 1983 women were elected for the first time as Lord Mayor of the City of Westminster and Lord Mayor of the City of London.
