The 2013 Gold 5oz Proof 60th Anniversary Coronation of Elizabeth II

A Gold Proof five-ounce coin, denominated as £10, to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. Elizabeth came to the Throne in 1952 and her Coronation was on 2 June 1953.

The coin is made from .999 (99.9%) fine gold and weighs 5 troy ounce (156.295g). It has a 50mm diameter. SCBC: M2.

The Reverse, by Jonathan Olliffe, shows an interior view of Westminster Abbey on Coronation Day, with Coronation regalia in the foreground.

Besides the intrinsic value of the metal, the coin is beautifully made and has a limited mintage of only 74. The coin was minted at the Royal Mint and was originally issued with a certificate of authenticity (COA).

The Obverse shows the fourth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley.

The coin shown was being offered for sale by M J Hughes Coins and we thank them for use of their images.

General Description: Miscellaneous
We created this category to show coins which don't have their own group, maybe because they are unique or rare, or just that we don't have enough images to justify their own group. Not necessarily expensive, some just too interesting not to list!
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.
