Behind the Craft - Platinum Jubilee

The story of Her Majesty’s historic 70-year reign begins on 6th February 1952, when King George VI died peacefully in his sleep at Sandringham.

Thousands of miles away in Kenya, the King’s eldest daughter Princess Elizabeth, still just 25 years old, and her husband Philip had enjoyed an overnight stay at Treetops Hotel before returning to their base at Sagana Lodge.

Elizabeth’s private secretary Martin Charteris received the news from London that the King had died before Prince Philip himself broke the terrible news to his wife that her beloved father had passed away in the night; Elizabeth was now Queen.

Stories

Platinum Jubilee

Upon her accession 70 years ago, Her Majesty also became Head of the Commonwealth, which at that time was formed of just eight member states including the former Empire territories of Canada, Australia, India and Pakistan. During Her Majesty’s reign the Commonwealth has grown to include 53 independent countries and over two billion people! Her Majesty’s commitment to, and affection for, the Commonwealth were captured in The Queen’s Christmas Day broadcast in 1953:

‘The Commonwealth bears no resemblance to the empires of the past. It is an entirely new conception built on the highest qualities of the spirit of man: friendship, loyalty, and the desire for freedom and peace.’ 
These words made clear Her Majesty’s willingness to break from the past, to forge new ground but to do so based on shared, traditional values. And it is those virtues of friendship, loyalty, freedom and peace that we honour now with this limited-edition 2022 Gold Proof Coin.

This exclusive neoclassical design by the celebrated artist Chiara Principe features two elegant female figures: to the left, a personification of loyalty and friendship while on the right stands a representation of peace and freedom.

Beams of sunlight radiate from the coin’s heart, below which sits a resting heraldic lion representing the strength and courage Her Majesty has shown throughout her 70-year reign, every detail emphasised by our finest Proof quality finish.
