Longest Reigning Monarch Silver Proof 5oz coin
The 5oz Coin to Celebrate our Longest Reigning Monarch
Her Majesty, the Queen is now our longest reigning monarch ever. On the 9th September 2015 HM Queen Elizabeth II surpassed the reign of Queen Victoria to become the longest reigning monarch in British History – a total of 63 years and 7 months and 3 days.
Britain's new Longest Reigning Monarch...
Ascending to the throne at the age of 25 after the death of her father, George VI, in 1952, Queen Elizabeth II has reigned for more than six decades of enormous social change and development.
What makes this landmark occasion even more unique is that we may never see another female monarch in our lifetime, let alone any monarch that may ever exceed 63 years on the throne.
Despite recent amendments to the line of succession, Her Majesty's next three heirs apparent are all male. Furthermore, owing to the unique circumstances surrounding Elizabeth’s accession to the throne at such a young age, it is highly likely that this new record will stand for centuries.
Secure the perfect commemorative to mark this moment in history...
To celebrate this momentous occasion, a brand new Silver Coin has been issued.
Struck in 5oz of solid 925/1000 Silver to a Proof finish, the coin features an Oak tree at the centre of the design – to represent long life and House of Windsor – as well as the Royal Cypher.
Fittingly, words from Britain’s national anthem “Long to reign over us” encircle the design around the rim.
It’s tough to do justice to a commemorative like this until you actually hold one in your hand. With a diameter of 65mm (over 2 and a half inches) and containing five timesthe Silver of a standard crown, collectors tell us they love the sheer size and weight of these impressive issues.
