The DateStamp Gold Plated Coronation Crown
Secure the original 1953 Coronation Crown plated in Gold and Rhodium Platinum
On 9th September Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II officially became our longest reigning monarch.
To celebrate the occasion, you now have the opportunity to secure the original 1953 Crown, a special commemorative issue from her Coronation year.
The obverse portrait of the crown was designed by sculptor Gilbert Ledward and shows Her Majesty mounted on a horse and dressed in her uniform as Colonel-in-Chief of the Grenadier Guards.
The image of a monarch on horseback has not been seen since the James I Crown in 1603, which makes this coin and its design highly prized and instantly recognisable amongst collectors.
Plated in 24 Carat Gold
However the 1953 crown we are offering is not just the ordinary cupronickel version, it has been richly plated in 24 Carat Gold.
What’s more, the reverse design has been skilfully highlighted with Rhodium-Platinum which really brings the image to life in a striking way.
Postmarked 9th September 2015
Each coin has been safely encapsulated within a tamper proof capsule alongside the Royal Mail’s brand new Longest Reigning Monarch Stamp, and officially postmarked with the all-important 9th September date when Queen Elizabeth II officially became our longest reigning monarch.
Strictly Limited to 495 Collectors
These unique, one-day-only commemoratives are available to just 495 collectors and, due to their postmarking date, the edition limit is set in stone.
