Eight new coins unveiled to mark Queen's historic Sapphire Jubilee

The Royal Mint has issued a special collection of coins

Former BBC Royal Correspondent Jennie Bond, who watched the new coins being struck at the Royal Mint in Llantrisant, south Wales, said of the £5 coins: "I particularly love the inscription around this coin. It reads 'shine through the ages' – taken from the Queen's Coronation speech. She was talking about how the ancient ceremonies shine through the ages of course, but for us, I think this also reflects how the Queen herself has shone, and continues to shine, throughout her wonderful long reign."

Jennie told HELLO!: "When she was 21, she declared in a public broadcast that her life, 'whether it be long or short', would be devoted to the service of her people. We all make promises when we're young – but few of us could emulate The Queen who, now our longest-serving monarch, is working almost as hard in her 91st year as she did when she came to the throne 65 years ago."
