A prestigious Piedfort to mark the Sapphire Jubilee

Her Majesty The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee was part of an exciting year for Britain – not only did the nation celebrate with Her Majesty but the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games made it a summer to remember. Younger members of the Royal Family travelled the world on behalf of The Queen and His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, perhaps one of the few concessions to maturity they have made as they continue to fulfil their royal duties. 

A Piedfort edition of the £5 coin struck for the Diamond Jubilee was issued in 2012. In 2017 a £5 coin with a design created by Glyn Davies will also be struck as a Piedfort – especially for this important anniversary, as The Queen becomes the first and only British monarch to celebrate a Sapphire Jubilee. The Royal Mint coin designer was inspired by the Imperial State Crown and The Queen’s own words for his reverse design. Just 2,500 editions of this Piedfort coin have been struck, finished to Proof standard and containing twice the 925 sterling silver of a standard £5 coin. The coin comes with a booklet produced in collaboration with former BBC Royal Correspondent Jennie Bond, who has shared her thoughts on some of the qualities that have made Queen Elizabeth II so popular.

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.*

Beautiful coin, an ideal Wedding Anniversary present for my wife .This Piedfort Sapphire Jubilee coin will be cherished by us and possibly be passed on to the grandkids in the future.
Excellent design with only 2500 available makes it even more desirable . Possibly a great investment too.

The Sapphire Jubilee piedfort coin is a most beautiful and substantial coin. The proof finish is very rich looking, and the added thickness and weight of the piedfort is quite impressive. A most magnificent coin and a very fitting, tasteful and stately commemoration of Her Majesty's Sapphire Jubilee.
