Why purchase this perfectly graded 2018 Lion and Unicorn Sapphire Coronation Silver Proof?

The British Indian Ocean Territory has issued this beautifully designed proof in celebration of the 65th Anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's coronation. The 65th Anniversary is associated with the Sapphire gemstone, symbolic of loyalty, peace and integrity. This proof, depicting the Lion of England and the Unicorn of Scotland, was struck at the Pobjoy Mint from .925 fine silver, its mintage limited to 2,000.

Spectacular Imagery with Royal Symbolism

A lion and a unicorn are depicted on the reverse, resting amongst an English Rose, a Scottish Thistle, a Welsh Daffodil and a Northern Irish Shamrock. The design includes a crown above and the inscriptions "1953," "H.M. QUEEN ELIZABETH II," "2018" and "TWO POUNDS."

The portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is centered on the obverse, surrounded by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "2018" and "BRITISH INDIAN OCEAN TERRITORY." This effigy is exclusive to coinage produced by the Pobjoy Mint.
