Not only is Her Majesty the Queen the longest reigning monarch in British history and the only British sovereign to celebrate her 90th birthday, this year she celebrates her Sapphire Jubilee.
This is the first Sapphire Jubilee to be celebrated in British Royal history – ever. And you can commemorate the occasion today, with this important new issue.
Approved by Buckingham Palace
Fully approved by her Majesty the Queen, the design has been inspired by traditional heraldic coin designs. Featuring the Sovereign’s Sceptre from the Coronation regalia alongside the year dates 1952-2017, it also shows the number 65 topped with a Royal Crown and surrounded by the floral symbols of the United Kingdom.
Sapphire and 24-Carat Gold
What’s more, selective gold plating has been used to highlight the design and a REAL sapphire has been set into the design.
The Sapphire Jubilee Silver Coin is struck in 925/1000 silver and to a pristine proof finish – the highest grade of finish found on collectable coins. Proof coins are produced using specially prepared dies and are struck multiple times allowing more intricate detail to be shown on the coin.
Of course, your coin is also displayed in a Deluxe Presentation Case alongside a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
With a worldwide edition limit of just 2,017, these coins are expected to sell out and fast.
This is the first Sapphire Jubilee in history, don’t miss out on this opportunity and secure your limited edition coin today.
