2003 Coronation 50th Anniversary £5 Crown Gold Proof PF 70

2003 Coronation 50th Anniversary £5 Crown Gold Proof PF 70 Holder

(VAT Exempt)
Graded PF 70 Ultra Cameo! 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 silver proof edition. 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.’ This Crown coin is struck to proof standard in 39.94 grams of 22 carat gold. It has a diameter of 38.61 millimetres and a milled edge. It’s one of just 1,896 issued in this presentation. This example has been given an outstanding grade by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation and is presented in its NGC holder.
