A vintage year of firsts and lasts united in one special set

Celebrating The Queen’s new coinage portrait

Exciting news has been announced – the fourth definitive coinage portrait of Her Majesty The Queen by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS, which has been a familiar presence on circulating coins since 1998, has been replaced by a new fifth portrait reflecting The Queen’s stature and maturity. Designed by one of The Royal Mint’s own gifted engravers, Jody Clark, the fifth portrait conveys Her Majesty’s maturity and stature. Celebrate the making of history with this first edition set. 

About the set

The changing of a coinage portrait is a rare occasion – throughout the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, there have been only four previous definitive effigies on the coins we use every day, meaning that 2015 will be a vintage year for the coinage of the United Kingdom. Royal Mint engraver, Jody Clark, has captured The Queen’s portrait with both modern and traditional elements and conveys a sense of the monarch’s warmth, with a hint of a smile, reflecting the modern Queen we see today.

This cordial fifth definitive portrait adorns the obverse of every one of the definitive UK coins in this desirable set, from the 1p to the £2. And the £2 in this collection is doubly special as it bears the new reverse design that heralds the welcome return of Britannia to the UK’s circulating coinage. Just 75,000 of these eagerly anticipated sets are available, struck in their circulating alloys, finished to our freshly minted Brilliant Uncirculated standard.

Lovely coins but they just don't look right

Rated 4 out of 5
06 March 2015

I love these coins and would have ranked them 5 but, firstly, they were delivered in a sleeve for both the 4th & 5th portrait (I only purchased the 5th) and, secondly, the £2 coin should really have been mounted within the set the other way round. There are seven coins with the Queen's head plus Britannia on one side with the Queen's head appearing on the other side for the £2 coin (easier to see than explain). It looks stranger than the photo on the website indicates but all the sets are the same. However, despite this, they are a great set of coins and delivery was extremely prompt.
