Celebrate a reign like no other with a regal £5 coin

On 9 September 2015, a royal milestone was reached as, after 63 wonderful years of sovereignty, Her Majesty The Queen became the United Kingdom’s longest reigning monarch. What a reign it has been, characterised by unparalleled cultural change and with personal highs and lows that we, as a nation, have shared. The Queen, ever-respectful towards her predecessors, has acknowledged the occasion quietly and we have marked the moment with a specially created £5 coin.

Renowned artist James Butler MBE RA, designer of The Queen’s Great Seal of the Realm, has created both the obverse and the reverse of this commemorative £5 coin. The coin’s reverse bears the familiar symbol of royalty, the Coronation Crown, while the obverse features a rare, commemorative effigy of Her Majesty. This historic coin has been finished to Brilliant Uncirculated standard – a lasting way to mark this once-in-a-lifetime event. It is accompanied by a booklet that details highlights of The Queen’s reign, from the televised coronation to Her Majesty’s first supersonic flight, and even her first Twitter post.
