60 years have passed since the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II: a wonderful day when the grandeur of the ceremony and the strength of the nation’s joyful mood shone through the gloomy clouds that had gathered overhead. After the exuberant celebrations of 2012, the time has come to mark the day in 1953 The Queen made her vow at her Coronation ceremony. Continue your Diamond Jubilee celebrations with this majestic coin, which bears the instantly recognisable Imperial State Crown at its centre.

The 60th Anniversary of the Queen's Coronation 2013 UK £5 Coin

The Coronation

The Coronation began with a procession that brought important guests from Britain and the Commonwealth to Westminster Abbey ahead of The Queen herself. Crowds thronged the route, straining for a glimpse as the procession passed by until finally the Gold State Coach appeared, carrying The Queen to the Abbey, where monarchs have been crowned for more than 900 years.

The ceremony is one of centuries-old tradition, from the garments worn, to the anointing and the regalia used to invest the new King or Queen. When the ancient St Edward’s Crown was placed on her head, the new Queen was greeted with shouts of ‘God Save The Queen!’

The Queen wore the Imperial State Crown for her return to Buckingham Palace and to watch an RAF flypast from the balcony – a scene so beloved and still repeated today. That same crown makes the ideal centrepiece for the coin that marks the 60th anniversary of the Coronation. Presented in a pack that will help you relive – or experience for the first time – the Coronation day, it has the extra glint of Brilliant Uncirculated quality.

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.

A superb addition to any collection, all the more significant as it can proudly sit beside the 1953 Coronation Coin my Grandmother gave me.
