See the 2016 gold 5 pounds in top grade NGC PF70 Ultra Cameo. This is the one-off limited edition special design by James Butler, struck to commemorate Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday.
Hi there and welcome to the Coin Cabinet's channel. Here is another video for you. A 2016 five-pound proof, the very popular James Butler design celebrating Queen's 90th birthday. Stay tuned for more.
So here it is, the 2016 five pound proof in NGC PF 70 Ultra Cameo. As you can see on the holder, it's one of the first 75 coins struck of a limited issue of only 575 coins. And NGC has a habit of putting the St. George and the Dragon reverse on the front side of the holder, which probably makes sense for most of the time, but I think it's a shame in this case because actually in this case the special design is the Queen's effigy, which is a celebration effigy, a one off, in commemoration of her 90th birthday. It was designed by James Butler who won the competition, and it is a very popular coin.
Obviously in Proof 70 the demand is much higher than the supply, which is a good thing in terms of what the value is. And I think it's still very early to say how the price of this coin is going to fare in the near future, but in the long term, I definitely think this is a very good investment in this grade.
So thanks for watching this short video about the 2016 special design Butler effigy to celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday. Stay tuned on our channel for more videos. Thanks very much. And take care.
