On the night of 1 June 1953, thousands of people set up camp on the streets of London. They were waiting along the procession route for the coronation of Princess Elizabeth the following day. At 11am on 2 June, she left Buckingham Palace in the Gold State Coach, destined for Westminster Abbey. Thousands more came to London for the day of the coronation, while those with televisions welcomed neighbours and friends into their homes to watch the first ceremony to be broadcast. In honour of the fiftieth anniversary of the coronation, The Royal Mint issued a series of special Five Pound coins, including this one in its Brilliant Uncirculated finish. In a departure from the traditional portraits and designs of previous crowns, Tom Phillips designed both sides in a unique style. The obverse displays a line drawn portrait of a young Queen Elizabethan profile, with a handwritten legend around the edge. Phillips took inspiration from an iconic profile of the Queen on her way to the opening of the Houses of Parliament in 1953. The reverse follows the same informal font using a textual motif of the commonly uttered ‘God Save the Queen.’ The legend reads ‘2003 Coronation Jubilee.’ Struck in the same Cupro-nickel as the coins in regular change, these BU crowns are finished to a high quality to make them more attractive and their designs more appreciable. The Five Pound comes in its original presentation sleeve with a wealth of information and pictures of the 1953 coronation; it is one of 100,481 in this presentation. In a standard weight of 28.28 grams and diameter of 38.61 millimetres.
