Information below is directly from TWAB by Bungie:

This will be the first time Lord Saladin returns to the Tower in Season 2. There have been some changes to how you’ll go about decorating your Guardian with relics of the Iron Lords.

First, we are adding new items to the engrams you will find waiting for you when you visit Lord Saladin. There will definitely be Season 2 weapons in the Iron Banner Engram and we will be adding more in the next event. Here is a look at what rewards you can expect to earn next week.

Crimil’s Dagger – Legendary Hand Cannon

Frostmire’s Hex – Legendary Scout Rifle

Gunnora’s Axe – Legendary Shotgun

Other Items Available from Completing Quest/Milestones/Challenges:

Iron Gallop – Legendary Sparrow

Iron Companionship Shell – Legendary Ghost

Iron Hero Sigil – Legendary Emblem

Iron Pendragon – Legendary Ship

View Iron Banner Armor Ornaments on the Planet Destiny Database

The only thing not pictured is the Iron Banner ship. We’ll save that for when you discover it yourself.

If you are missing items from last season, they will still drop as possible rewards from the engram. There is also a new emblem that tracks how many lifetime rank ups for Iron Banner you have earned in Destiny 2. You can earn it by completing the Iron Banner Milestone.

We’ve received a lot of feedback from previous Iron Banner events that players preferred a way to directly acquire items. We have added the ability to obtain armor and three different weapons from Lord Saladin during each event. Here is what he has to offer next week.

The final way to earn rewards is by completing challenges. Ornaments are available for all your Iron Banner gear and you can unlock them by completing various objectives for Lord Saladin.

Season 2 Ornaments

There are no limits to how many engrams you can acquire or how many tokens you can earn. Get as much playtime as you can during the week. It will always move you a little closer to opening another engram, earning an ornament, or purchasing a piece of gear from Lord Saladin. Go nuts! – This info is directly from Bungie TWAB post
