Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has spent a lifetime in the service of her country, with the year 2013 marking the historic 60th Anniversary of her Coronation at Westminster Abbey on 2nd June 1953.
To commemorate this incredible dedication to her country, five nations from around the world have united to offer the ultimate tribute as part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations: a magnificent coin each from Ascension Island, British Indian Ocean Territory, Falkland Islands, Isle of Man and South Georgia & South Sandwich Islands.
The South Georgia & South Sandwich Islands commemorative coin launched by Pobjoy Mint features a Coronation image of Her Majesty above a diamond with reflections running through it. The choice of the diamond signifies the celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Year.Show more
Available as an Uncirculated Cupro Nickel £2 coin, every coin has been finished to the exacting high standards that distinguish a Pobjoy Mint coin. The obverse of all coins carry an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS. Ian Rank-Broadley is one of the foremost sculptors working today. His effigy of H.M. Queen Elizabeth II has appeared on all UK coinage since 1998 and the Pobjoy Mint has exclusive use of the ‘uncouped’ effigy that appears on the obverse of these coins.
A lifetime of service
Both Queen Elizabeth II and His Royal Highness Prince Philip have dedicated the last 60 years to serving their country and its people. They married on the 20th November 1947 and today have four children, eight grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
The Queen acceded to the Throne on the 6th February 1952, following the death of her father, King George VI. She is the second longest serving monarch, after Queen Victoria, and her coronation was attended by 8,251 guests with the return route to Buckingham Palace specially designed to ensure that as many people as possible could see the Queen and her procession. As part of the 2013 celebrations, a special Service of Celebration was held at Westminster Abbey and attended by Her Majesty and the rest of the Royal Family.
The first time since Queen Victoria’s era that there have been three living male heirs, these coins provide the perfect souvenir to mark this momentous occasion.
