Mark the 70 year reign of Queen Elizabeth II - which is the longest a monarch has ever sat on the throne - with this selection of coins and medals

For every milestone a monarch has reached, a number of commemorative goods are created - and for the historic Platinum Jubilee The Royal Mint produced a selection of new coins to mark the Queen’s 70 year reign.

Queen Elizabeth II was the first British monarch to be on the throne for 70 years.

Naturally there is renewed interest in this historic coins given the Queen’s death on 8 September 2022 at the age of 96.

Will the Royal Mint Platinum Jubilee coins increase in value?

Collectors’ or commemorative coins are not all created equal - they are made either from solid gold or silver, or they are gold-plated or base metal, and you can buy them from the Royal Mint.

While commemorative coins are limited in number, this doesn’t stand as a guarantee that they will increase in value over time. As with most collector’s items, this comes down to the demand of collectors over time.

It is possible that coins created to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee - especially the coins that are more limited in number - may increase in value now the Queen has passed away, however there is no guarantee of a return on investment, so buyer beware.

Is there a Platinum Jubilee commemorative medal?

In keeping with tradition, a Platinum Jubilee medal was awarded to those who work in the public services, including representatives of the Armed Forces, the emergency services and the prison services.

The Platinum Jubilee medal was been designed by Timothy Noad, of the College of Arms, and features an image of the Queen with the Latin inscription: “Elizabeth II Dei Gratia Regina Fed Def”, which stands for: “Elizabeth II, By the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith”.
