The Official Coin for the Sapphire Jubilee

In her long reign, Her Majesty The Queen has marked Silver, Golden and Diamond Jubilees. Official jubilee coins are important reminders of these special times and when The Queen reached an unprecedented milestone of 65 years since coming to the throne, The Royal Mint created an official UK coin to mark the moment.

They were based on the coinage portrait he created for Britain’s new decimal coins and introduced in 1968. The Royal Mint and Royal Mail joined together to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the designs.
