'Throughout my life and with all my heart I shall strive to be worthy of your trust,' spoke Elizabeth II at her coronation speech. She was crowned at Westminster Abbey on 2 June 1953 having acceded to the British throne on the death of her father, George VI, in 1952. Since then Elizabeth II has lived up to her promise, becoming the longest reigning Queen monarch in the history of the United Kingdom and earning respect at home and throughout the Commonwealth. To celebrate sixty-five years since her accession to the throne, The Royal Mint released a series of commemorative £5 coins, including this silver proof version. The reverse design features an outer ring with the bold inscription 'SAPPHIRE JUBILEE · 1952 - 2017' with an inner circle of a more intricate design. On the left is the Imperial State Crown which is traditionally worn by a monarch after their coronation, and has since been worn by The Queen for state occasions. The crown is turned away from its usual angle in order to make a feature of the Stuart sapphire in honour of the Sapphire Jubilee. Another inscription reads 'MY WHOLE LIFE, WHETHER IT BE LONG OR SHORT, DEVOTED TO YOUR SERVICE' which was taken from a speech given by Her Majesty on her 21st birthday. The design is the work of Glyn Davies. His design is paired with Jody Clark's portrait of The Queen on the obverse. The edge carries an inscription reading 'SHINE THROUGH THE AGES.' A total of 8,260 of these silver proof coins were issued in this format, with a weight of 28.28 grams and a diameter of 38.61 millimetres. The Crown comes in its original packaging from The Royal Mint, with certificate of authenticity and an informational booklet about the coin and the history. This Five Pound is struck in .925 sterling silver and finished to proof quality.
