2014 Death Of Queen Anne Five Pound Crown Brilliant Uncirculated Coin In Folder

UK14QABU 2014 Death Of Queen Anne Five Pound Crown Brilliant Uncirculated Coin In Folder
£75.00
2014 was the 300th anniversary of the death of the last Stuart monarch, Queen Anne. To mark this, the Royal Mint issued a collection of commemorative £5 crown coins, with this specific coin being struck twice in cupronickel to give a brilliant uncirculated finish. Under Queen Anne's rule, the 1707 Act of Union was passed which joined the nations of England and Scotland to form the Kingdom of Great Britain. She died without issue in 1714, which lead to the extinction of the 111 year old Stuart dynasty over the throne. She was crowned in 1702 as the Queen of England, Scotland and Ireland, and died as the Queen of Great Britain and Ireland. Both sides of this UK coin show a British Queen: the obverse shows Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of Elizabeth II, seen on UK coinage struck between 1998 and 2015. It's the fourth such effigy of Her Majesty used on her coins. The reverse features a traditional design by Mark Richards which shows a left-facing portrait of Queen Anne in a decorative frame with her shield of arms below it. This is the shield Queen Anne used after the 1707 Act of Union, and eagle-eyed observers will be able to spot the three fleurs de-lys on it, representing her claim to the French throne. The coin weighs 28.28 grams, has a diameter of 38.61 millimetres and is encased in an informative Royal Mint coin sleeve - the original packaging. A highly collectable piece, celebrating the reign of a great British Queen.
