In 1993, to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Queens Coronation, The Royal Mint released a Limited Issue Brilliant Uncirculated £5 Five Pound Coin First Day Cover.
The reverse has the St Edwards crown which forms the center-piece and is surrounded by forty trumpets recalling the fanfare that welcomed the Queen as she entered Westminster Abbey on Coronation Day designed by Robert Elderton.
The obverse design portrays the Queen uncrowned as she appeared o her first coins in a portrait by Mary Gillick, encircled by mounted trumpeters, who, in turn, are separated by swords and sceptres of the Royal Regalia.
