This year the entire nation celebrated as Queen Elizabeth II became the first monarch in our history to reach a Platinum Jubilee – 70 years as monarch. For an event of such magnitude, a new Silver Proof Five Pound coin has been minted.
The design shows the Tower of London, an historic monument which, for centuries, has been closely associated with the monarchy in Britain. Also in the design is an arrangement of summer flowers, in full colour! What a superb way to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s Jubilee – a massive posy of congratulations, as it were – on this superb silver coin.
The flowers shown include Lily of the valley, which was Her Late Majesty’s favourite flower. The other flowers are species that will flower during the summer (Cosmo, Gerbera, Rudbekia, Blue cornflower) and are likely to be used in arrangements and gardens throughout the country during this summer of celebration.
Each coin has a Certificate of Authenticity.
