On 9 September 2015, Her Majesty The Queen surpassed the record set by her great-great grandmother
Queen Victoria more than a century ago, becoming Britain’s longest reigning
monarch. Renowned artist James Butler MBE RA, designer of The Queen’s Great Seal of the Realm, has created both the obverse and the reverse of this commemorative £5 coin. The coin’s reverse bears the familiar symbol of royalty, the Coronation Crown, while the obverse features a rare, commemorative effigy of Her Majesty.
