During the late hours of 9th September, 2015, Queen Elizabeth II became the longest reigning British head of state. The title was previously held by Queen Victoria, who reigned for 63 years and 216 days. This made Queen Elizabeth not only the longest reigning British monarch, but the longest reigning female monarch.
Five pound coins are often referred to as crowns. These coins are British legal tender and are exempt from Capital Gains Tax, however, they are not used as a circulation coin. Banks and shops do not need to accept them as payment.

Unlike other 2015 crowns, which feature either the Queen's fourth portrait by Ian Rank Broadley or the new fifth portrait, by Jody Clark, this coin has a special commemorative obverse design. Created by James Butler, the portrait shows the Queen wearing the King George IV State Diadem which she wore on her coronation day, on her way into Westminster Abbey. She changed into the St. Edward's Crown at the altar. The obverse bears the inscription:
ELIZABETH II · DEI · GRA · REG · F · D · FIVE POUNDS
The reverse of the coin shows an engraving of the Coronation Crown (St. Edward's Crown) by James Butler.
