Stunning limited edition silver-plated coin cover issued in 2021 to celebrate the Queen’s historic 95th birthday
2021 marks the historic 95th birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Born on the 21st April 1926, she would ascend to the throne at the young age of 25 and become the longest-reigning, oldest serving sovereign in the entire history of our monarchy. This significant Royal occasion, which will be marked across the UK and throughout the Commonwealth, has rightly been commemorated with the release of a brand new, limited edition coin cover.
The cover’s centrepiece features a brand new commemorative coin issued especially for the Queen’s birthday. The 28 gram coin has been expertly struck to a proof-like finish and plated in 999/1000 fine silver. The coin’s reverse features a large ‘95’ with a Royal Crown and a subtle silhouette of two corgi dogs in the background, traditionally associated with the Queen. The obverse features an official portrait of Her Majesty who will become the very first monarch in our history to celebrate a ‘Platinum Jubilee’ in 2022.
To complete this impressive cover, it includes a stunning image of a young Queen dressed in full regalia on her coronation day. A first-class Machin stamp is included and cancelled on the 1st January 2021 – marking the beginning of the 95th birthday year – setting in stone the low worldwide edition limit of 4,999 covers.
The life-long popularity of the Queen and her record-breaking reign are two key reasons why the cover is in high demand. Harrington & Byrne has managed to secure a very small number of these limited edition, silver plated covers to offer today.
