A remarkable Coin struck to celebrate a remarkable reign. The majestic 65mm 'Long May She Reign' Five Crown Coin was struck on the day of Her Majesty’s 65th Coronation Anniversary
It was 65 years ago, on the 2nd of June 1953, that Elizabeth was officially crowned Queen at the tender age of 27.

Now an incredible 65 years on, a new coin – The Long may She Reign Proof Five Crown Coin – has been released to celebrate Her Majesty’s Sapphire Coronation. This spectacular coin measures an impressive 65mm in diameter - corresponding to the 65 years since Her Majesty’s Coronation.
A historic world-first Royal Anniversary captured on a ‘struck-on-the-day’ coin
What makes this coin truly exceptional is that it has been struck on the very same day that Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II became the first British monarch in history to celebrate a sapphire coronation anniversary - the 2nd of June 2018.
