Extremely limited edition
Commemorate the Queen's Sapphire Coronation with this specially issued silver Proof coin featuring two Windsor monarchs.
This 99.9% silver Proof coin enjoys two remarkable feats of minting craftsmanship, that also serves as a fitting metaphor for the succession of the throne: The portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, taken from one of the first coins of her reign, is struck in ultra high relief. This fantastic three-dimensional effigy rises above the surface of the coin.
Her father, King George VI, appears incused on the coin, meaning the design has been impressed below the surface of the coin. The portrait is taken from one of the final coins of his reign, creating a lovely sense of continuity between the two effigies.
The reverse features Pobjoy Mint's exclusive effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.
Along with its innovative and unique design, the coin's very low mintage of just 650 marks it out as one of 2018's must-have pieces.
The Sapphire Coronation
Queen Elizabeth II is our first monarch to celebrate a Sapphire Coronation anniversary.
Crowned in 1953 aged just 25 years old, Elizabeth became the longest reigning monarch in 2016, finally overtaking the previous record-holder (and her great-great grandmother), Queen Victoria.
Elizabeth's reign has been longer than her father, uncle, and grandfather combined, and has remained a symbol of longevity and stability for British people everywhere.
