Royal Mint Product Description:

A Remarkable Reign: 65 Years of Duty and Devotion

A royal year of celebration in 2018 continues with a very important anniversary. Having become our longest reigning monarch in 2015 and celebrating her 90th birthday in 2016, the remarkable reign of Her Majesty The Queen presents another historic milestone as we mark the 65th anniversary of her coronation.

Queen Elizabeth II is the first British monarch to reach such a milestone, and the occasion demands a fitting celebration. Two designs and a limited edition range of coins have been created especially for the occasion, available in versions from a Brilliant Uncirculated £5 coin to a gold Proof kilo coin.

A New Landmark Celebrated with a Gold Coin

When George VI died on 6 February 1952, the crown immediately passed to his eldest daughter, Princess Elizabeth, who at just 25 years old suddenly found herself in the spotlight of public life. To allow for a respectful period of mourning and time for preparations to take place, the coronation was planned for the spring of 1953. His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh was chairman of the organising committee. He kept a close eye on every detail as they prepared for the public event and as President of The Royal Mint
