2013 UK Coronation Jubilee Silver Proof Set
Featuring seven sterling silver coins, the 2013 United Kingdom Silver Proof Set is the premier limited edition coin set issued in honour of HM Queen Elizabeth II's Coronation Jubilee.
2013 was also the 60th anniversary of British coinage bearing the young Queen’s effigy, giving your set a timely numismatic dimension.
The Official Coin of the 2013 Coronation Jubilee
Accordingly the coins in your set have been specifically chosen to represent this historic anniversary. The showpiece coin is the Official Coronation Jubilee £5 Crown. Designed by Emma Noble the reverse depicts the Imperial State Crown – worn by Queen Elizabeth II after her coronation ceremony.
The realistic design is a remarkable feat considering the relatively small surface area of a coin. It also benefits substantially from the fine Proof finish. Overall it’s a fitting tribute to the occasion and we feel it’s one of the most significant coins issued in recent years.
Alongside this coin is the Royal Shield formed from the definitive coins that were re-designed in 2008. It’s unusual to see everyday denominations like the 20p struck in silver, and combined with the innovative designs these coins provide the ideal companion to the £5 crown.
Limited to Just 495 Sets for the World
The 2013 United Kingdom Silver Proof Set has an edition limit of just 495. That’s 8 times less than the Queen’s 80th Birthday silver set issued in 2006 and 30 times less than the silver proof set issued for the millennium!
As you can see, in the history of United Kingdom Silver Proof sets this is already one of the scarcest ever issued, and it commemorates the most significant Royal anniversary of 2013.
Fine Proof Finish
Each coin is struck up to four times with a specially polished die, achieving a unique mirrored background that contrasts with the frosted relief of the design. Only viewing the coins in real life does justice to the craftsmanship behind them.
Your set will arrive complete in a Deluxe Presentation Case from The Royal Mint complete with a Certificate of Authenticity attesting to its precious metal content and edition limit. Ideal to keep your set safe for your children and grandchildren to appreciate and enjoy in the future.
