God Save The Queen!
Last year saw the historic Diamond Jubilee of HM Queen Elizabeth II. Perhaps even more significantly, this year will mark the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s Coronation. After 16 months of preparation for the event, on June 2nd 1953 the young, newly ascended queen was crowned Queen of the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Ceylon, and Pakistan, as well as taking on the role of Head of the Commonwealth.
Nearly 60 years later, Queen Elizabeth II is currently Britain’s second longest ruling monarch which is a huge achievement and makes this event a very significant milestone in Britain’s history.
To mark this historic event, we commissioned a leading British designer to create a wonderful regal design in rich burgundy and blue, embellished in gold. In our Coronation range we have wonderful Limited Edition Premium Quality 330gsm playing cards. Just 800 twin decks have been produced and for the ultimate luxury we have an additional 200 twin decks which are gilt-edged in gold.
Co-ordinating with the playing cards we have score pads and note pads in a choice of burgundy or blue. Choose between a pad of rubber bridge or chicago bridge score cards, or a pad of plain white note paper.
Coronation Mini Gift Set
We’ve also put together a gorgeous Mini Gift Set containing the wonderful limited edition playing cards, 1 score pad and 4 lovely blue and gold pencils, beautifully packaged in a burgundy buckram and gold box made just for this gift set. As a customer who recently purchased one from us as a present for her son-in-law said:
“I don’t want to give it away, I want to keep it! It’s so lovely!”
