- Marking 65 years of Her Majesty The Queen’s reign, this commemorative coin has been stuck in 925 sterling silver and finished to a proof standard, with only 8000 coins made this truly is an heirloom piece. This commemorative coin is complete with a booklet written in collaboration with Royal Correspondent Jennie Bond and has been designed by Glen Davies. The design included a speech made by the queen on her 21st birthday. ‘My whole life, whether it be long or short devoted to your service.’ Glyn Davies joined The Royal Mint’s team of coin designers in 2012 and has also designed the Remembrance coin for 2015. “I drew inspiration from the regalia associated with The Queen’s coronation. As opposed to many traditional designs, I’ve rotated the crown to make a feature of the Stuart sapphire. I have also included a quotation from Her Majesty’s 21st birthday speech, which makes the design more personal. I used computer-aided design to create the inscription, but sculpted elements of the crown in clay. Combining a modern approach with traditional craftsmanship gives the design an energetic rather than static feel.” Glyn Davies
