On 9 September 2015, a remarkable royal milestone was quietly marked in the history books. After 63 years, Her Majesty The Queen became our longest reigning monarch, surpassing the record set by her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria. Her Majesty quietly acknowledged the occasion, ever-respectful towards her predecessors, but at BRITAIN we decided to mark this significant moment by teaming up with The Royal Mint to bring great prizes to seven lucky readers.

First prize is The Longest Reigning Monarch 2015 UK £5 Silver Proof Piedfort Coin, which retails at £160. Just 3,700 of these coins have been produced and both the reverse and obverse feature designs by James Butler MBE RA, one of Britain’s foremost sculptors.

The coin’s reverse bears the familiar symbol of royalty, the Coronation Crown; the obverse, unusually, features a commemorative effigy of Her Majesty. Struck on this double-thickness sterling silver Proof Piedfort, the coin is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity. Also included is a booklet that details the social and technological highlights during The Queen’s reign, and her links with them, as a monarch who has presided over unprecedented change.

Second prize is The Longest Reigning Monarch 2015 UK £5 Silver Proof Coin (also designed by Butler), of which 9,000 were created and which retails at £80. We also have five runners-up prizes of The Longest Reigning Monarch 2015 UK £20 Fine Silver Coin, one of 150,000, which features Jody Clark’s definitive coinage portrait of The Queen and which is worth its intrinsic value of £20.
