2012 Diamond Jubilee £5

2012 marked the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II.  Sixty years as British monarch is a landmark milestone that has only ever been matched once before – by Queen Victoria – and is unlikely ever to happen again in our lifetimes.

This £5 coin was struck in 2012 to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's accession to the throne. This is the first coin ever struck to commemorate a Diamond Jubilee - there were no special coins for Queen Victoria's in 1897. 

The obverse features a new portrait of Her Majesty crowned and wearing the robes of the Order of the Garter, created especially for the Diamond Jubilee by Ian Rank-Broadley. The reverse features a portrait of the young Queen Elizabeth as she appeared in her first portrait also by Ian Rank-Broadley.
