A coin befitting a great event.
The coin is very beautiful and so is the presentation pack.This coin,commemorating perhaps the greatest event of the Queen's reign so far, is one of my most valuable possessions.God Bless Her Most Gracious Majesty!
First of a three coin series
I purchased this beautiful coin with the crown on the reverse in its display folder. I looked at the 5 oz Ag coronation coin and was disappointed that the design did not have the crown in a coronation commemorative. I looked at the 1 kg Ag coronation coin and loved the design for the reverse with all the regalia. However at the time, I was content to have this affordable clad commemorative in my collection. Later my coin dealer called me about a proof from the first 200 struck of the 1 kg coin and decided to buy this piece of history. It is the grandest coin in my collection. It takes two hands for me to lift it from the presentation case. If you can afford it, buy the 1 kg coin. If not buy the 5 pound clad with the crown on the reverse. Either way you have bought a piece of British History.
Something to Share
A superb addition to any collection, all the more significant as it can proudly sit beside the 1953 Coronation Coin my Grandmother gave me.
