David Sundman forwarded this article about the Queen’s Sapphire Jubilee coin. Thanks. -Editor
The Royal Mint is to mark the 65th anniversary of the Queen’s accession to the throne with a range of Sapphire Jubilee commemorative coins.
The anniversary falls on February 6 and is a first for a British monarch. The coins will cost from £13 for the brilliant uncirculated (the second highest standard of finish) £5 piece to £49,995
for the £1,000 UK gold proof kilo coin. All coins feature the Queen’s image in profile, while the £5 range has the imperial state crown on the reverse, and an excerpt from Princess Elizabeth’s speech
in which she dedicated herself to her future role: “My whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service.”
The £10, £500 and £1,000 coins feature the royal coat of arms.
