2016 UK Queen Elizabeth II 90th Birthday £5

To celebrate the 90th Birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II The Royal Mint issued a new commemorative £5 coin.

This coin features a design by Christopher Hobbs, depicting nine roses, inspired by Her Majesty’s love of flowers – one for each decade of Her Majesty’s life.

You’ll notice the flowers in the wreath are each different to the next one. As this was such a personal occasion, Hobbs chose to move away from heraldic flowers and to use a more natural floral image instead.

The obverse features the fifth portrait of Her Majesty the Queen, designed by Royal Mint engraver Jody Clark.

Excitingly for collectors, Change Checker has a limited number of Official 2016 UK Queen’s 90th Birthday £5 BU packs remaining. To secure yours for JUST £30.00 (+p&p) click here >>

In 2012, the Queen celebrated her Diamond Jubilee having reached 50 years on the throne.

This is the first coin ever struck to commemorate a Diamond Jubilee – there were no special coins for Queen Victoria’s in 1897. The obverse features a new portrait of Her Majesty crowned and wearing the robes of the Order of the Garter, created especially for the Diamond Jubilee by Ian Rank-Broadley.

Also designed by Ian Rank-Broadley, the obverse features a portrait of the young Queen Elizabeth just as she appeared in her first portrait with the Latin words DIRIGE DEUS GRESSUS MEOS (May God Guide My Steps).

2002 UK Golden Jubilee £5

In 2002, to mark the 50th anniversary of the Queen’s accession to the throne, the Royal Mint produced this £5 coin.

On one side appears an unusual bust portrait of the Queen wearing the robes of state. The dramatic impact of this motif are heightened by the absence of any inscription other than the value in small lettering around the foot.

The reverse design, as with the original Coronation crown of 1953 features the Queen on horseback. The Latin motto AMOR POPULI PRAESIDIUM REG(inae) meaning ‘The love of the people is the Queen’s protection’ was last used on the coinage of Charles I.

1993 UK 40th Anniversary of the Coronation £5

This £5 coin was issued to mark 40 years since the Queen’s coronation in 1953.

The obverse features the original portrait by Mary Gillick placed in a circle surrounded by eight mounted trumpeters of the Household Cavalry separated by swords and sceptres.

The reverse features the Crown of St Edward which was used at the Coronation, set within 40 radiating trumpets.

The words FAITH AND TRUTH I WILL BEAR UNTO YOU, from the Coronation oath, are inscribed at the top, with the double dates 1953 and 1993 appearing at the foot.

On the 22nd of July 2013, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed their first child, Prince George into the world. As third in line to the throne, the Prince has grown up in the limelight, warming hearts of people the world over and being adored during Royal Tours with his parents.

Now, as the 22nd of July 2018 approaches, the nation looks to celebrate the fifth birthday of the much loved Prince with a commemorative £5 coin issued by The Royal Mint.

This brand new coin design was revealed at the start of the year and has now been officially released to mark HRH Prince George’s fifth birthday in July.

The new £5 coin issued to mark Prince George’s 5th birthday.

This modern interpretation of a traditional design by esteemed mint designer, Jody Clark portrays an image of Saint George slaying the mythical dragon with a spear.

Saint George is known as the patron saint of England, upholding the ideals of honour, bravery and gallantry. The legend of George and the Dragon dates back to the 7th century or earlier, symbolising the victory of good over evil.

This is the first time that Saint George and the Dragon has been depicted on a base metal coin in over 60 years, a key feature for collectors.

It seems fitting that this traditional depiction should be used to represent our young Prince as he reaches this milestone in his early life, taking on the responsibility of being a big brother to his two younger siblings and tackling the trials of starting education, all alongside his Royal duties and representing the country of course.

Commemoratives marking Prince George’s fifth birthday are sure to be in high demand and £5 coins are reserved for the most important Royal and historical anniversaries, making this coin the perfect way to celebrate this special Royal Birthday.

As our future King, any coin issued to celebrate Prince George will be highly sought after, especially amongst Royalty collectors who won’t want any gaps in their collection.
