On 17 November 1558, the 25-year-old Elizabeth, the daughter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, was proclaimed Queen of England. Known as the Virgin Queen, Elizabeth I became one of the best-loved and influential English monarchs, whose date of accession remained a national holiday for 200 years.
To celebrate the 450th anniversary of her becoming Queen a £5 crown has been struck featuring on its reverse a portrait of Elizabeth by the silversmith Rod Kelly.
The obverse bears the fourth definitive coin portrait of Eliabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley and the inscription:
ELIZABETH II·D·G REG·F·D FIVE POUNDS
Inspired by the magnificent 'Armada' portrait of Elizabeth by George Gower, Rod Kelly's engraving features the Queen crowned and set within a mandorla created by four decorative arches.
A Tudor rose has been placed at each connecting point while the two side arches each contain a beautiful leaf pattern reminiscent of the carvings made by the Queen's loyal servant and friend, Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester.
The year of her accession and the year of the anniversary are both shown in Roman numerals with the inscription:
|Obverse Designer:||Ian Rank-Broadley|
|Reverse Designer:||Rod Kelly|
|Mint:||The Royal Mint|
|Limited Edition Presentation:||5,000|
