The coat of arms on this piece comes from a Royal Arms Officers button, worn between 1871 and 1901. The lion and the unicorn are symbols of the United Kingdom. They are heraldic supporters appearing in the full royal coat of arms of the United Kingdom. The lion stands for England and the unicorn for Scotland. The combination therefore dates back to the 1603 accession of James I of England who was already James VI of Scotland. By extension, they have also been used in the arms of Canada since 1921.
