The world's first-ever Sovereign's Orb Coin - a masterpiece in modern minting

In 2018 Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her Sapphire Coronation Anniversary. An unprecedented landmark in an extraordinary reign, the likes of which we, or future generations, are unlikely to ever see again. To celebrate this world-first event The Bradford Exchange is proud to announce the release of a remarkable world-first legal-tender coin, the likes of which you will never have seen before – The Sovereign’s Orb Coin.

A fusion of Centuries of Royal Tradition with State-of-The-Art Minting

Britain’s Royal Regalia are sacred objects used in the coronation of our sovereigns and they form the most complete lection of royal regalia in the world. Symbolising the relationship between the sovereign and the people, the duties and responsibilities of leadership, none are more symbolic than the sovereign’s orb. Crafted over 350 years ago for the coronation of Charles II, the sovereign’s orb represents the monarch’s role as Defender of the Faith and Head of the Church of England. Now in 2018, it is the Sovereign’s Orb that has been chosen as the ultimate symbol of Her Majesty’s dedication to our nation and a world-first orb coin has been struck in honour of this majestic milestone.

As exclusive as it is technically brilliant, the mintage of this legal-tender issue is a mere 500 worldwide

Whilst the worldwide mintage is just 500 –that doesn’t tell the whole story, as 350 coins have been already been reserved overseas, meaning just 150 coins from the mintage are allocated to the United Kingdom. Fewer than 1 in 165,000 UK households will be able to own this world-first coin!

This coin is a majestic fully three-dimensional spherical tribute.

Just like the original Sovereign’s Orb, it features bejewelled bands surmounted by a cross.  Issued as legal tender by the government of Niue with a $2 denomination it is crafted in solid Sterling Silver enriched with 24-carat gold plating and adorned with 36 genuine Swarovski® crystals. It measures an impressive 26mm in diameter and weighs a full two Troy Ounces - 62.2 grams. Because of its spherical shape, there is no heads or tails; obverse or reverse sides but look to the base of the orb and you will see the effigy of Her Majesty The Queen, the denomination and the year of issue, just as on a traditional coin.

This exclusive tribute to Queen Elizabeth II’s Coronation 65th anniversary is a notable issue: each coin is handmade and completely unique – making it the ultimate collectors’ item – a fact attested to by the uniquely numbered Certificate of Authenticity which accompanies each issue and confirms the coin’s world-first, limited-edition status.

Completing the presentation, each coin is beautifully presented within a luxurious spherical presentation case – an inspired and entirely appropriate finishing touch.
