Join us for a special year
Each year, families enjoy celebrating special occasions, from births to birthdays, which are memorable moments to treasure. The Royal Family is no exception but when they celebrate an important occasion, the nation loves to get involved.
The Royal Mint has marked historical royal moments from coronations to christenings, and has struck the coins of every monarch since Alfred the Great. As 2021 fast approaches, we’re looking forward to a very special year with many once-in-a-lifetime moments for the Royal Family.
The Sovereign is a coin with strong ties to the monarchy and the coins of The Sovereign 2021 Collection features a ‘95’ privy mark in celebration of Her Majesty The Queen’s 95th birthday. As the world’s longest reigning living monarch, The Queen is the first British monarch to reach such a grand milestone, so the festivities won’t stop there – and with other truly momentous occasions on the horizon, like the Platinum Jubilee, its sure to be an exciting few years. We can’t help but wonder if Her Majesty will be sending an extra 100th birthday card in 2021 when His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh will celebrate his 100th birthday in June.
In these strange times the festivities may be pared back but The Royal Mint will still be celebrating these unique moments with the nation, a reminder that even when we’re apart we can still share special moments together.
