Whilst 2012 has seen the celebrations for Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee – 2013 marks the actual 60th Anniversary of the Queen’s Coronation at Westminster Abbey on 2 June 1953.
Now you can celebrate this historic milestone with an Official New £5 Coin.
The obverse features an exclusive Jubilee double-portrait design, depicting Her Majesty at the time of her Coronation and now. The reverse depicts the floral symbols of the United Kingdom shaped to represent St Edward’s Crown, the crown that is used in the Coronation Ceremony. The Queen's EIIR cypher features in the centre of the design.
Limited Edition – available for face value
More importantly, just 60,000 coins have been set aside to have the crown and floral emblems intricately embellished in gold, creating an exquisite final coin and an exclusive limited edition.
