The obverse of each coin features an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II exclusively by Pobjoy Mint.
The Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II took place on 2nd June 1953 at Westminster Abbey. Princess Elizabeth ascended the throne at the age of 25 upon the death of her father, King George VI, on 6th February 1952. The Coronation took place more than a year later because of the tradition that holding such an event is inappropriate during the period of mourning that follows the death of a monarch and also due to the time it takes to organise such a major royal event. A total of 8,251 guests attended the Coronation ceremony with 129 nations and territories being officially represented.
To mark the 65th Anniversary of the Coronation, we have produced an unusual set of five coins from various Overseas Territories who we represent.
