The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee toy soldier sets are beautifully detailed figures from W. Britain. These five pairs of guards represent the Grenadier Guards, Irish Guards, Welsh Guards, Scots Guards, and Coldstream Guards.
“2012 promises to be a very busy year for the United Kingdom, with the Summer Olympics and Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II all happening within a few weeks of each other! To commemorate the Jubilee we have specially commissioned this series of five colours, one from each of the Guards Regiments. The Queen came to the throne on 6 February 1952 and her coronation took place on 2 June 1953. She celebrated her Silver Jubilee (25 years) in 1977 and her Golden Jubilee (50 years) in 2002. The only other British monarch to celebrate a Diamond Jubilee was Queen Victoria in 1897.
Please note these figures are in the same style as the Redcoats series figures and as such are a true 54mm (2.25” tall) size with a classic glossy toy soldier finish and a high level of painting detail.”
