Diamond Jubilee £5 coin **ltd edition **
- Source: eBay UK
It is the Queen's Diamond Jubilee this year, which marks a reign of 60 years - only the second such Jubilee in Britain’s long history - will be a truly historic milestone in the life of the nation. The only other monarch to reign for such a long period of time was The Queen’s great-great grandmother, Queen Victoria.
To celebrate this grand royal occasion, the Royal Mint has struck a beautiful new £5 coin with two new portraits of The Queen spanning her long reign.It is the first coin ever struck to commemorate a Diamond Jubilee - there were no special coins for Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee in 1897 - and is certainly worthy of the occasion.
