In her long reign Her Majesty The Queen has marked Silver, Golden and Diamond Jubilees and the nation has celebrated with her each time. The parties and parades, the public ceremonies and private festivities in homes across Britain are part of many happy memories. Official jubilee coins are important reminders of these special times and as The Queen reaches an unprecedented milestone of 65 years since coming to the throne – the first and only British monarch to celebrate a Sapphire Jubilee – The Royal Mint has created an official UK coin to mark the moment.
The Sapphire Jubilee £5 coin is available struck to Brilliant Uncirculated standard and is presented in a display folder filled with memories and observations, created with the help of former BBC Royal Correspondent, Jennie Bond.
For this historic occasion we have joined with Westminster Abbey for a special offer for Royal Mint customers. Every coin from The Queen’s Sapphire Jubilee range, purchased direct from The Royal Mint before 28 February 2017, comes with a voucher for 25% off admission to Westminster Abbey, where The Queen was crowned on 2 June 1953.*
