2006 Queen's 80th Birthday £5 Crown BU in Folder

2006 Queen's 80th Birthday £5 Crown BU in Folder
from
£9.99
Born in April 1926, Elizabeth II became heir presumptive in 1936 and came to the throne at the age of 25 in 1952. In her ninth decade, Her Majesty became the longest-lived and longest-reigning British monarch in history. The Royal Mint has marked many milestones for The Queen but in 2006 they celebrated her eightieth birthday with a suite of Five Pound coins, including this Brilliant Uncirculated edition. This Crown features a trio of fanfare or herald trumpets with ceremonial banners, bearing the royal arms. Designed by Danuta Solowiej-Wedderburn, the legend reads ‘VIVAT REGINA’ which translates to ‘Long live the Queen’, in a nod to the royal birthday. Around the edge is transcribed ‘DUTY SERVICE FAITH,’ recognising her strong relationship with the Church, as well as the role she plays in the United Kingdom and Commonwealth. Wedderburn’s design is paired with Ian Rank-Broadley’s portrait of Her Majesty the Queen, in use between 1998 and 2015. This BU Five Pound is made of the same cupro-nickel alloy as the coins in circulation, but struck to a higher standard to give an attractive finish and allow the design details to be appreciated. It weighs the traditional 28.28 grams and has a diameter of 38.61 millimetres. This collectable crown comes in its original presentation folder, which contains the beautifully displayed coin alongside historical information and many pictures detailing The Queen’s long life.
