Pobjoy mint is celebrating Sapphire Jubilee of the Queen by releasing a ‘double-headed’ coin with an exclusive portrait of Queen Elizabeth and a maximum mintage limit of 1,952 (195 being the year when the Queen was enthroned)! The Queen is facing right on the obverse and left on the reverse. The obverse in struck in relief and the reverse in incuse. The incuse effect on the reverse is highlighted by striking it in reverse proof, alternating the frosting and the proof finish. The coins are struck four times to attain the mirror finish.
