Year 2003 Coronation Jubilee Five Pound Crown in Gold
As you can see from our photographs, there is a new design of five pound crown issued in 2003 to mark the celebrations of the Queen's Coronation Jubilee year.
Coronation Jubilee Design
For the Queen's Coronation 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.
Five Pounds £5
22 Carat Gold
