2002 Five Pound Coin – Elizabeth II Golden Jubilee


The 2002 Five Pound Coin - Elizabeth II Golden Jubilee

This Crown size commemorative coin was released for Queen Elizabeth's Golden Jubilee, celebrating 50 years of reign. SCBC: L10.

The coin was available as BU, Silver Proof and Gold proof. There is a BU Proof that was issued as part of the 2002 year set.

The Obverse, by Ian Rank-Broadley, shows an equestrian image of the Queen on horseback. Legend is "ELIZABETH II DEI GRA REGINA FID DEF" with an inner legend of "AMOR POPULI PRAESIDIUM REG" (The love of the people is the Queen's protection). Below, the Royal Coat-of-Arms split the date 2002.

The Reverse, also by Ian Rank-Broadley, is a portrait of The Queen looking over her shoulder, which is an unusual angle for a bust.

Both designs were used on this coin only.

General Description: Five Pound Coins
As Crowns were redenominated from 25p (five shillings) to £5 in 1990, this category contains the newer 'decimal crowns'. We call them five pound coins because there are quite a number of these and the Royal Mint doesn't always refer to them as Crowns, although they seem to have the same weight and general dimensions. For the older, traditional coins see our Crowns category.

The Royal Mint issue many £5 coins both individually and as a series. They are all commemorative and are usually available as BU and silver, often gold and sometimes with other series variants like 1oz, 5oz, 10oz, etc. There are always plenty on ebay.
Which Mint: The Royal Mint
The Royal Mint is the designated place for the UK to mint coins. It dates back well over 1000 years and is a Government-owned company. 

Formed in the reign of Alfred the Great about the year 886, during the period 1279-1812 it was generally referred to as The Tower Mint as it was housed at the Tower of London. The Master of The Royal Mint has included famous figures such as Sir Isaac Newton.

Since 2010 it has operated as Royal Mint Ltd, a company owned by HM Treasury, under an exclusive contract to supply all coinage for the UK although it also produces medals and coins for other countries. It is currently located at Llantrisant, Wales.

There is also an on-line shop at The Royal Mint Shop.
Country of Origin: United Kingdom
The United Kingdom (UK) is the Union of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. It is often refered to as Great Britain (GBR). It has a long, rich history.

The orignal coinage was Pounds, Shillings and Pence but since decimalisation on 15 February 1971, it is £1 = 100p, that is One Pound = 100 pence. The coinage of the UK is also a long history, the Royal Mint being established as long ago as 886AD when coins were hammered. Today there is perhaps 30 billion coins in circulation, and many (numismatic) collectors coins and sets are issued frequently in gold, silver and other metals.
