This year was a year of great celebration for the entire nation as Queen Elizabeth II became the first monarch in British history to reach a Platinum Jubilee – 70 years as monarch. For an event of such magnitude, a brand new Silver Proof Five Pound coin has been minted.
The design shows the Tower of London, an historic monument that, for centuries, has been closely associated with the monarchy in Britain. Also in the design is an arrangement of summer flowers, in full colour! What a superb way to celebrate Her Late Majesty’s Jubilee – a massive posy of congratulations, as it were – on this superb silver coin.
The flowers shown include Lily of the valley, which were Queen Elizabeth II’s favourite flower. The other flowers are species that will flower during the summer (Cosmo, Gerbera, Rudbekia, Blue cornflower) and are likely to have been used in arrangements and gardens throughout the country during this summer of celebration.
Each coin has a Certificate of Authenticity.
