Queen Elizabeth II was crowned at Westminster Abbey on the 2nd June, 1953. She had acceded to the British throne on the death of her father, King George VI, the previous year. 60 years on, in 2013, The Royal Mint looked back on the beginning of Elizabeth II’s reign with this coronation anniversary BU Five Pound coin. It features a beautiful engraving of the Imperial State Crown on 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. The current version of the Imperial State Crown was made in 1937 and consists of gold, silver and platinum. It has 2,901 precious stones adorned on it and it weighs 2.3 pounds in total. 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. This collector’s piece weighs 28.28 grams, has a diameter of 38.61 millimetres and is issued in the original Royal Mint packaging, which consists of a coin slipcase. It’s struck twice during production, giving it a brilliant uncirculated finish, which is a superior standard to the coins found in normal circulating change. An excellent gift idea for any follower of the Royal Family or coin collector.
