UKCAPG 2013 Queen’s Coronation 60th Anniversary £5 Crown Gold Plated Silver Proof Boxed
from
£145.00
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was crowned at Westminster Abbey on 2 June 1953. She had acceded to the British throne on the death of her father, George VI, the previous year. Sixty years on, in 2013, The Royal Mint looked back on the beginning of The Queen’s reign with this coronation anniversary gold plated silver proof Crown. It features an image of the Imperial State Crown to the reverse by designer and engraver Emma Noble. Part of the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom, this crown is traditionally worn by a monarch after their coronation, and has been worn by The Queen for state occasions, such as the opening of Parliament. This crown was one of three worn by Elizabeth II during her coronation. The George IV State Diadem was worn during the procession to Westminster Abbey. This piece is featured on Raphael Maklouf’s portrait of The Queen which was featured on circulated coins between 1985 and 1997. During the crowning, St Edward’s Crown was placed on Her Majesty’s head for a few minutes. First used by Charles II in 1661, this crown is solid gold and adorned with precious and semi-precious stones, weighing almost 2.3 kilograms. The coin’s legend, positioned around the Imperial State Crown, takes inspiration from a speech made on Her Majesty’s coronation day: ‘TO REIGN AND SERVE · A VOW MADE GOOD’. This crown motif is paired with Ian Rank-Broadley’s fourth official coinage portrait to the obverse. Diameter: 38.61 millimetres. Offered in original presentation packaging from The Royal Mint with numbered certificate. Struck in 28.28 grams of .925 sterling silver and plated in fine gold, this coin is one of just 2,547 coins issued worldwide.
