- 'Double Headed' Incuse Portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II
Queen Elizabeth II is unique in that she is the first ever British Monarch to have a reign long enough to achieve a Sapphire Jubilee. We have decided to honour Her Majesty by releasing a beautiful ‘double-headed’ coin!
The coin depicts the exclusive Pobjoy designed Queen’s effigy facing right on the obverse and left on the reverse. In order to make this coin special we have struck the obverse in relief and the reverse incuse, which adds new levels of complexity to the striking process.Show more
Queen Elizabeth II acceded to the throne at the age of 25, upon the death of her father, King George VI, on 6 February 1952, and was proclaimed Queen by her various privy and executive councils shortly afterwards. The Coronation took place more than a year later due to the tradition that holding such a festival is inappropriate during the period of mourning following the death of a monarch. In the ceremony itself, at Westminster Abbey, Elizabeth swore an oath to uphold the law and govern the Church of England.
The 65th anniversary is associated with the gemstone sapphire - symbolic of loyalty and some say can bring inner peace and fulfilment of dreams and prosperity. The colour associated with this anniversary is blue - symbolic of trust and peace, loyalty and integrity, all characteristics you would expect in a Sovereign.
