Year 2002 Golden Jubilee Five Pound Crown in Gold
As you can see from our photographs, there is a new design of five pound crown issued in 2002 to mark the celebrations of the Queen's Golden Jubilee year.
Golden Jubilee Design
For the Queen's Golden Jubilee, the 50th anniversary of her reign, the crown is being produced with a special commemorative design. In keeping with the designs of the 1953 coronation crown, and the 1977 silver jubilee crown, the queen is shown on horseback. This new equestrian portrait is the work of the artist who created the Royal portrait approved for the circulating coins of the United Kingdom from 1998.
In addition to the usual inscription, there appears "AMOR POPULI PRAESIDIUM REG" which translates loosely as "The Love Of The People Is The Queen's Protection". This inscription but with the word REGIS for king instead of REG for queen first appeared on gold angels of Charles I. We sincerely hope it proves more fortuitous and appropriate for our present monarch.
A superb portrait of the Queen in robes and diadem graces the reverse. Both designs are the work of Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS, FSNAD, the artist who created the Royal portrait approved for the circulating coins of the United Kingdom from 1998.

Royal Mint Error
Somebody at the Royal Mint's marketing department has mis-matched the obverse and reverse pairing of this coin as well as the Gold £5 Crown Queen Elizabeth II Queen Mother Memorial Proof Overlay. As far as we know the incorrect image appears only on their website.
This pairing, which would constitute a rare "mule", does not exist on the actual coins.
Not only have the RM negligently used the wrong photos, but just look at the price and availability, £1745, and if anyone wanted to purchase one, they don't have any in stock, but have to go out and source one from a coin dealer. The Mint state up to 28 days for delivery.
We carry these in stock, and as at 18th January 2016, our price was only £1080!
Buying from us, you can save 38%, and be dealing with people who know about coins, and know what they are talking about.
