65 Years of Loyalty and Affection - Sapphire Jubilee - 1952-2017
The official coin for the United Kingdoms first Sapphire Jubilee
In her long reign Her Majesty The Queen has marked Silver, Golden and Diamond Jubilees and the nation has celebrated with her each time. The parties and parades, the public ceremonies and private festivities in homes across Britain are part of many happy memories. Official jubilee coins are important reminders of these special times and as The Queen reaches an unprecedented milestone of 65 years since coming to the throne – the first and only British monarch to celebrate a Sapphire Jubilee – The Royal Mint has created an official UK coin to mark the moment.
The Sapphire Jubilee £5 coin is available struck to Brilliant Uncirculated standard and is presented in a display folder filled with memories and observations, created with the help of former BBC Royal Correspondent, Jennie Bond.
Features a design approved by the Palace, with the reverse design exclusive to the five pound coin.
