This £5 coin in Platinum Piedfort (double thickness) is the ultimate tribute to this unprecedented 60th anniversary. The design has approval from the Palace and Treasury, the obverse bearing the effigy by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS and the reverse featuring a powerful new design by Emma Noble. This features the Imperial State Crown Her Majesty wore as she left Westminster Abbey after the coronation ceremony. Around it run the words “TO REIGN AND SERVE - A VOW MADE GOOD”. This exquisite £5 coin is the most precious of the new coins struck to celebrate this 60th anniversary – in a very limited edition presentation of only 100. Queen Elizabeth II will be the oldest monarch to achieve this landmark - only attained once before, by Queen Victoria. It is almost inconceivable that anyone alive today will witness another such occasion. The design pays homage to the ceaseless dedication shown by The Queen ever since that far off day – a day of glorious pageantry which brought new hope to a nation battered by bleak years of war and austerity. Few who were then alive will ever forget it. A coin as rare has huge appeal to collectors – especially when the event it celebrates commands so much attention. The demand for coins marking The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee was extraordinary. Several were completely sold out three months before the end of the year. Once the limited edition presentation of 100 is reached, no more of these coins will be struck. If you wish to secure your Platinum Piedfort coin we strongly advise ordering early.
