On her 21st birthday, a young Princess Elizabeth made a speech promising to serve the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth throughout her life. More than 70 years later, as the world celebrates Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, The Royal Mint honours particular aspects of Her Majesty’s life of service. A limited collection of three UK coins highlights The Queen’s personal commitment to her people, communities and the Commonwealth nations.

The Irish artist and illustrator P. J. Lynch has represented three key areas of Her Majesty’s reign with richly symbolic designs that were inspired by and feature The Queen’s signature, as a symbol of her personal commitment to others. The first design explores the honours and awards she gives to nominated individuals for their service, the second highlights her patronage and support of charities, and the third celebrates  Her Majesty’s tireless work for the Commonwealth.

These coins are available as gold Proof, silver Proof Piedfort, silver Proof and Brilliant Uncirculated editions.
