In June 1953, Her Majesty The Queen was crowned in a ceremony that linked centuries of tradition with changing times. The young Queen Elizabeth II represented a renewed hope for a bright future and the start of a new chapter for Britain. The nation came out in force to celebrate and thousands lined the streets to catch a glimpse of the procession.
Throughout her reign, The Queen has given the nation so many special moments and milestones to celebrate, and we have been proud to have been there for every anniversary and many other happy occasions. Now, as Her Majesty The Queen reaches another milestone, we mark the moment with two coin designs that celebrate the Sapphire Coronation. We recently caught up with Dominique Evans, designer of the Coronation 5oz and Kilo to find out a little more about her design.
