Silver Two Ounces 2022 Platinum Jubilee, Coin from United Kingdom
CoinSilver Two Ounces 2022 Platinum Jubilee

Like many other mints, the Royal Mint issues bullion coins in precious metals, having much higher intrinsic value than their face value. The two ounce (2 oz) silver coins are denominated as Five Pounds (£5).

The coins are legal tender but are not intended for circulation. They are targeted at bullion investors or collectors who appreciate the special editions as pieces of art. The coins are typically "one-year" types usually issued in parallel with smaller denominations with the same reverse designs.

This commemorative two-ounce silver coin celebrates the Platinum Jubilee (70th anniversary) of Queen Elizabeth II's reign. It has a special equestrian portrait of the Queen on the obverse, created exclusively the coins in this series.

On the throne since 6 February 1952, at the date when the coin was issued Queen Elizabeth II was the longest-lived and longest-reigning British monarch, the longest-serving female head of state in history, the oldest living and longest-reigning current monarch, and the oldest and longest-serving incumbent head of state.

Reverse
United Kingdom / Silver Two Ounces 2022 Platinum Jubilee - reverse photo

At its centre, the reverse of the coin displays the draped Shield of the Royal Arms of the United Kingdom - quartered, depicting in the first and fourth quarters the three passant guardant lions of England; in the second, the rampant lion and double tressure flory-counterflory of Scotland; and in the third, a harp for Ireland. The drapery is inspired by the royal mantle, or robe, worn by Her Majesty at her coronation in 1953.

The shield is surrounded by the Garter of the Royal Order of the Garter, inscribed with the royal motto HONI · SOIT · QUI · MAL · Y · PENSE · (translated from Old French: May he be shamed who thinks badly of it), and is crowned with St Edward's Crown.

In the right field, the designer's initials JB, for John Bergdahl.

Around below, the anniversary dates · 1952 2022 ·.
