QUEEN ELIZABETH II GOLDEN JUBILEE OF 2002 CROWN

The Golden Jubilee crown featured an Equestrian Portrait of Her Majesty carrying on the tradition which had begun with the 1953 Coronation crown and then continued with the first jubilee crown of 1977. The legend includes the phrase AMOR POPULI PRAESIDIVM REG(INAE) which means “The love of the people is the Queen’s protection”.

On the obverse side it featured a new portrait of Her Majesty by Ian Rank-Broadley and it is the only coin ever to feature it.
