To mark the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II ascending to the throne in 2013, The Royal Mint released a silver piedfort proof Five Pound coin set showing the four portraits of the Queen used on UK coinage on each coin's obverse (up to that point). She came to the throne in February 1952 on the death of her father, King George VI, at the age of just 25. The first portrait of her to appear on British coins and the first in this UK coin set was designed by Mary Gillick and notably didn't show her wearing a crown. It was used from 1953 to 1970, and the next portrait was by Arnold Machin which was used from 1968 to 1984. Machin's portrait was commonly known as the decimal portrait as it coincided with Britain's adoption of decimal currency. The next portrait was by sculptor Raphael Maklouf, which can been seen on UK coins dated from 1985 to 1997. The last coin shows Ian Rank Broadley's portrait of Her Majesty, which was used from 1998 to 2015. These historical obverse portraits are paired with a stunning depiction of the royal arms by James Butler on the reverse. Piedfort coins are double the size of normal coins: each £5 piece weighs 56.56 grams, stuck in 0.925 fine sterling silver to the Royal Mint's proof standard. This gives the set a combined silver weight of 6.7282 troy ounces. Only 697 sets were issued in this limited edition presentation, which consists of the original presentation box and certificate of authenticity. Included in our price is free insured delivery to UK addresses. A lovely memento to the reign of Queen Elizabeth II.
