This sterling silver £5 coin is the most affordable of the new precious metal coins struck by The Royal Mint to celebrate the 60th anniversary of The Queen’s Coronation. It makes a perfect companion to those minted to mark her Diamond Jubilee - which created unprecedented demand.
The design has approval from the Palace and the Treasury, the obverse bearing the effigy by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS and the reverse featuring a powerful new design by Emma Noble. This shows 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 splendid £5 coin is being struck in a limited edition presentation of 15,000.
