This year, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II becomes the first ever British monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee. To mark this momentous occasion – 70 years since she became our sovereign, the FIRST EVER 70p coin has been issued - 7 sided for 7 decades.  Layered in pure Silver, the coin portrays the Queen at the time of her Accession 70 years ago, set against the background of the Union Flag. 

A 'first of its kind' 7 sided coin tribute to the Queen's 70th Accession Anniversary

The Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee 70p has has been struck as a seven-sided coin - just like it's 50p forebear, each side representing one of the seven decades of the Her Majesty's reign.   Each coin has been struck to a PROOF finish, the highest quality possible, coveted most by collectors, each coin struck not once, but twice onto a specially prepared mirrored surface. Every detail of the artist's design stands out with remarkable clarity due to the care and attention of craftsmen in producing the master tools.

Each coin is layered in pure Silver 

In recognition of the significance of the platinum jubilee, each 70p coin has been layered in one of the world's most precious metals - pure Silver.

The new Platinum Jubilee 70p coin features a specially commissioned effigy of The Queen inspired by a portrait made of Her Majesty by society photographer Dorothy Wilding just 20 days after her accession to the throne.
