Description of obverse and reverse The Royal Mint is delighted to be able to mark such a historic year for The Queen with a new obverse portrait which shows an effigy of Her Majesty The Queen in the present wearing her Garter Robes. The Queen wears the Garter Robes when she attends the ‘Order of the Garter. For the reverse portrait Ian Rank-Broadley was inspired by take Mary Gillick’s portrait of The Queen which was the first portrait of The Queen that appeared on UK circulating coins from 1953 until 1968. He has used his own interpretation of this portrait in order to add other elements to the design including foliage. This is a specific reference to Queen Victoria – the only other monarch to achieve her Diamond Jubilee in 1897 as her medal also included foliage.
A brief annotation The Royal Mint has been at the heart of Royal events for centuries. Every key milestone in the life of Her Majesty The Queen has been marked from her Coronation in 1953, Silver and Golden Jubilees to her Golden and Diamond Wedding anniversaries. To mark the 60th anniversary of The Queen’s accession to the throne in 2012 the Royal Mint is extremely proud to confirm the release of an Official UK £5 Crown. With specially commissioned obverse and reverse designs it is sure to be a fitting tribute and prove extremely popular with numismatists, Royal collectors and the general public, both in the UK and internationally.
