Issued to celebrate Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II Sapphire Jubilee
Inspired by the tradition of designing Guineas using heraldic symbols and intricate designs to create strong royal motifs
Featuring symbols relating directly to the coronation ceremony to create the world’s first Queen Elizabeth II Sapphire Jubilee Guineas
Individually numbered and strictly limited to just 1,000 coins worldwide
Minted in the exact same specification as the last circulating Spade Guinea struck under King George III, the 2018 Royal Cypher Guinea Gold Proof coin features a single motif taken from the embroidered emblem ERII Royal Cypher which featured on Her Majesty’s Robe of Estate worn at her Coronation ceremony on 2 June 1953 at Westminster Abbey. This beautifully designed Royal Cypher is very rarely used and this is the first time it has appeared on a coin.
Above it sits the Imperial State Crown, worn on the day of the Queen’s coronation and one of the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom. The border of wheat ears and olive branches, symbolising peace and plenty, is also inspired by the embroidered decoration on the coronation robe.
