Commemorate the Queen's Sapphire Jubilee with this specially issued silver Proof Royal Crest coin
The coin's design - The Royal Crest
This Proof silver coin features The Royal Crest. Appearing on the gates of Buckingham Palace, the Royal Crest is a symbol of Britain that dates back to Richard the Lionheart. It features a regal lion for England on the left, and a mystical Unicorn for Scotland on the right. Both creatures support the UK Royal Arms in the centre. Just below the crest stands St. George, patron saint of England.
The coin's mintage of 1,952 reflects the year the Queen ascended to the throne (not her Coronation the following year).
The reverse features Pobjoy Mint's exclusive effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.
The Sapphire Jubilee
Queen Elizabeth II is our first monarch to celebrate a Sapphire Jubilee. Crowned in 1953 aged just 25 years old, Elizabeth became the longest reigning monarch in 2016, finally overtaking her great-great grandmother Queen Victoria.
Her coronation was broadcast worldwide, and was watched by 27 million Britons.
