Queens Diamond Jubilee
The Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II is the international celebration throughout 2012 marking the 60th anniversary of the accession of Queen Elizabeth II to the throne on 6 February 1952. She is today Queen Regnant of 16 sovereign states, 12 of which were British colonies or Dominions at the start of her reign.
THE UNITED KINGDOM ASSAY OFFICES have joined forces to launch a commemorative hallmark to celebrate HM The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012. Known as the Diamond Jubilee Mark, this special commemorative mark, approved by the British Hallmarking Council, depicts a young Queen Elizabeth wearing her crown in a Diamond shaped surround.
