In honour of Queen Elizabeth II’s Golden Jubilee in 2002, a splendid £5 Gold Proof Coin was released, commemorating fifty years of Her reign. This coin, a tribute to half a century of Royal service, is meticulously crafted from 22-Carat Gold, with a weight signifying a solid 1.41 ounces of the finest, pure Gold.

The reverse side of the coin was designed by Timothy Noad. It features a depiction of a shield, containing the Royal Arms, supported by an image of the Queen on horseback. This is a traditional symbol of strength and endurance, reflecting the Queen’s 50 years on the throne. Surrounding the central image are ten heraldic beasts, each holding a shield that bears a coat of arms representing different parts of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth. These beasts include the lion of England, the unicorn of Scotland, the dragon of Wales, and others, symbolising the unity and diversity of the realms the Queen serves. The design is intricate, with each element carefully chosen to represent the Queen’s long and steady reign.

The obverse presents a striking portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, created by the renowned sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley, whose work adds an air of distinction and solemnity to this exceptional collector’s piece. This portrait is more than a mere depiction; it encapsulates the dignity and grace of the Queen’s tenure, reflecting the respect and admiration held for Her both in the United Kingdom and across the Commonwealth.

Produced with extraordinary attention to detail, the coin is struck using specially selected dies and highly polished blanks, ensuring that each element of the design is rendered with clarity and brilliance. This meticulous process highlights the intricate features of the Jubilee emblem and the Queen’s effigy, making the coin a masterpiece of numismatic art.

With a limited edition run, this £5 Gold Proof Coin is a coveted item for collectors worldwide. Its composition of solid, fine 916.7 Gold underscores not only its value as a precious metal but also its significance as a commemorative piece. The 2002 Queen’s Golden Jubilee Gold Proof £5 Coin is not just a collectable; it is a lasting tribute to Queen Elizabeth II’s fifty years on the throne, celebrating Her enduring legacy and the unwavering bond between the monarch and her people. It stands as a distinguished and valuable piece for both coin enthusiasts and those who wish to honour the remarkable milestone of the Queen’s Golden Jubilee.
