This year is a year of great celebration for the entire nation as Queen Elizabeth II becomes the first monarch in our history to reach a Platinum Jubilee – 70 years as monarch. For an event of such magnitude, a brand new Silver Proof Five Pound coin has been minted.
The design shows the Tower of London, an historic monument that, 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 Her Majesty’s Jubilee – a massive posy of congratulations, as it were – on this superb silver coin.
The flowers shown include Lily of the valley, which is The Queen’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.
