This beautiful new £5 coin, struck to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, pays tribute to a Queen who has reigned with grace and dignity for 60 years.
The Queen's Diamond Jubilee this year - only the second such Jubilee in Britain’s long history - will be a truly historic milestone in the life of the nation. To celebrate this grand royal occasion, the Royal Mint has struck a beautiful new £5 coin with two new portraits of Her Majesty spanning her long reign.
It is the first coin ever struck to commemorate a Diamond Jubilee - there were no special coins for Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee in 1887 - and is certainly worthy of the occasion.
